Well thats like saying windows 9x is the same as dos 6.22. They might have parts of the same base, but the end product, its looks, and its abilities are completely different.
The R&D computers these comapnies made are by far the most interesting and radical since they are never meant to be everything for everybody. If a design is selected for production alot of the cool features get removed or dumbed down to meet a price point, production difficulties, or are too different to catch on. Unless of course the CEO demands those features then you end up with the original NEXT computer that costs $10,000 and doesnt sell.
