Assuming that wasn't an entirely rhetorical question, as a user, does it really matter? Sure, all of those years ago, momentarily ignoring the custom chips, it was Motorola hardware that powered the games and utilities that we enjoyed so much. I don't know how it was or is for others, but in the first instance, it was the software that provided (or provides) that feel that has so enamoured many of us throughout these years.

One could also consider running Intel-compatible hardware in the background to be akin to adding an accelerator back in the day. I certainly wouldn't have said 'no' to giving Imagine access to the sort of processing power that even my PII has - never mind the multi-gigahertz silicon of even today's budget solutions!

Of course, it's horses for courses - but hey, you shouldn't feel so bad.
