a brief tour of why
“It was, however, used in the first Apple I computers (later Apple Is were made with the 6502).”
It was used in early paper designs, but I can find no evidence it was ever put into a motherboard, so “made” is a stretch here.
“and the best darn keyboard ever made”
Typo: should be “loudest”.
Lived through this entire era, remember all the shifts & turns. Started with S-100 computer with 8080, TRS-80 with Z-80, Atari 800 with 6502, Radio Shack Color Computer with 6809, finally IBM PC. Worked at Bell Labs, learned Unix & C, programmed 68000 system for network design. Hired in Switzerland where replaced DEC PDP-11 microcomputer (yes we called them that) systems with IBM PC/AT’s. Was an exciting time, loved small computers & believed everyone should own one, which they do now 🙂
