A few weeks ago, I was visiting a friend who collects classic computers, and he had an old Silicon Graphics workstation in his kitchen and a DEC Alpha in his basement. I know a lot of people who wish they had worked on a system like a Cray or maybe a Lisp machine, and other people who miss working on systems like the Burroughs machines. What classic system do you wished you worked on or miss working on? (There are so many classic systems out there that I know I won’t be able to list all of them in the following poll. Please feel free to do a write-in vote by posting to the discussion.)
