Re: Z80 was a more sophisticated processor

@mage. I am a fan of ARM (I fucking wish I was still a shareholder though) However for nearly 40 years I have always thought that if IBM had chosen the 6809 computing would have been 10 years further on than it was. But would the future, ARM*, have still been around?

*I say the future is ARM - if there ML stuff comes out at a Raspberry Pi level they WILL be the future.
