Even when the PC was developed it took several years for it to "catch" on
and now everyone is on line and computer savvy. What really happened was
the door to cheap computing opened up via "Computer Shopper" and we could
order bits and pieces to put together OUR VERY OWN PC! It still cost more
than some of today's high end computers.

My question is....when are we going to see a "RP SHOPPER" and mail order
parts to build you own RP&M system? Send me the first copy please.
