I understand the hardware guys, and why they want to "build" something. I'm
more on the user side tho. I put VCC, all my Coco/OS9 software, and most of
the PDF scanned magazines on a 32-gig Flash drive (to get it all I just need
a couple gig more<g>). The size of my thumb. Fits in my pocket. Runs on
ANY windows XP or Win7 computer I happen to be sitting in front of. The
ultimate in portability.
And most any windows machine I plug that flash drive into has additional USB
ports, printer ports, memory card readers and VGA (or better) displays.
That's why I like the software route.
If I was repackaging and selling this, I could ship you a complete Coco3/OS9
system with ALL available documentation, manuals, programming books, games,
utilities, etc... In a standard envelope, for less than $60.00 total.
