Wow. And they put a big red circle/X through the CoCo, too. Like
somebody is going to go out and look for a CoCo to do all that XP stuff. :)
I'm actually going to watch the rest of the video later since I'm
dabbling in USB/CF bootable CoCo emulation, where you would be able
to take a virtual CoCo in your pocket when you leave town, head over
to the friends house, etc., pop a USB dongle in their PC and boot
right into a CoCo with all the historical software right there. My
2gig CF card is nowhere close to running out of room. It already
allows an IA-1 unit to boot right into Keil's emulator, thanks to the
help of a few others who helped me with that project. Still, I like
the idea of the USB stick better.
