Ok, real #retrocomputing realtalk. In your opinion, what’s the most esthetically pleasing old computer or terminal?
Here’s my top 3 (list subject to change without notice due to new finds and whims)...
@thomasfuchs There’s some extra prizes!
The Holborn 6100 wins best Monitor stand.
@Qwxlea they had personality, for the last 15-20 years everyone is just trying to copy Apple
@thomasfuchs and lousy copies at that. I like the apple aesthetics, but want to run FOSS on it. They give us not-quite-right aesthetics, and hardware that still needs blobs to function
@Qwxlea I like the ability run foss (& with that Unix stuff) next to proprietary stuff, something they now have been allowing for almost 20 years.
I think a mainstream OS going that way really was a good thing for FOSS in general.
It’s a bit like the success of Starbucks making people aware that there’s more than gas station coffee and independent coffee shops started to pop up everywhere. (At least that’s what happened in the US.)
