Usually stay away from emulators, keep a cuple of them mostly for
quick look-see things but 90% of my CoCo use is with the real thing:
have a CoCo 1 F board and a 512k CoCo 3 as the main machines at home.
Do have a few CoCo 2s but those are right now in storage.
On the CoCo 3 I still use Deskmate 3 at least on a weekly basis to
keep sort of a log of my activities; then games would be the second
category of usage followed closely by whatever OS9L2 I can try out.
Gaming is also the main usage of my F board CoCo 1, followed up
closely by some OS9 L1 prodding.
I do have a couple of Basic programming projects that may be picked up
as I settle down in my new location... it's been crazy for the last
two years and following a 2,500 miles relocation in early 2004 I
finally 'settle' down for what I hope to be by place for a good time
coming. I just finished setting up my CoCos desk yesterday evening!
