Agreed, it's sad, but also makes me happy because we're a rare breed. Even with modern PCs or Macs, I don't think people harbor that same nostalgia that we get to enjoy time and again. This is just the latest evolution of how modern tech is less special than those first few years of home computing were. We're lucky to have experienced it first hand.
