Since at some point I "grew up" with what is retro-actively called a niche computer system (Sharp MZ series),
I wonder if there are other users around here that had used something else than one of the omipresent mainstream computers (Commo., Ata., Sincl.).
Say, the RCA COSMAC VIP, ZX81/clones, EACA/Trommeschläger Colour Genie EG2000, Apple II, VTech Laser, MSX, Tandy TRS-80, TI-99/4A, TO7-70 and so on.
Don't get me wrong, I've got no aversion against the aforementioned mainstream classics (I had one of each myself).
It's just that the strong use of them in today's pop culture makes me sometimes doubt,
whether or not my own point of view of computer history, the way I personally remember, was ever true..
That's why I would like to know if anyone of you ever had (or only used) one of the niche computers also,
and what you were using it for. It can be video games, of course, but also "lame" use case are interesting to me.
Say, using one of these computers for writing recipes, homework, doing calculations etc.
Please feel free to write what ever you like.
