Well we should be careful this list doesn't become known as haven for
supporters of old dead technologies. Today a Newton fan crying over the
loss of what he thinks is the worlds most incredible handheld toolkit,
tomorrow someone mailing about how incredible the N770 would be using
the Amiga workbench or an old Acorn fan claiming that the device would
reach the heavens if it only ran Acorn Unix.

Think there is a some special newsgroups still around where these people
belong :)
