Oh dear! Never liked them!
They were just coming into my school when I was studying my GCSEs back in 1987, but around the same time luckily my old man, not an IT techie in anyway at that time, realised that bog standard x86 PCs were the way things were going and somehow managed to afford a good PC for him and my Mum and cheap Amstrad 1640 for me, rather than let me rely on having to use the RM machines at school.
I hated the fact that everything you learned on early RM machines was almost like playing in a simulation of a PC, nothing seem genuinely real, unlike an x86 which had...DOS,GEM Desktop, Ventura, AutoCAD then later Windows 2.1, all gleefully swapped amongst us spotty IT geeks at school! I'm sure RM started a lot of people on the road to realising that computers were the thing to get into, but after having your PC at home, nothing else could compare with x86.
Now look at the mess we're all in!!!
