Well.. Looking at the big picture, with Stella for the PC, all the development tools, this console, and more.. The community has effectively recreated the VCS infrastructure and greatly expanded on it. And made it incredibly more convenient. Not bad for a 41 year old game console!
It still amuses me to this day:
I discussed small computers and future-laptops back in the late seventies.
Looked at a wall of cartridges and imagined putting them on a "SuperMan" style data crystal.
Imagined having instant access to thousands of games, electronically organized too.
Imagined playing them on a TV as big as the livingroom window.
And got laughed at by real IBM engineers for even thinking about such nonsense.
..and..well..here we are!
