    actually the first to have the chinese font generator is the Cubic 88 which was not launched (because it was based on the Z80 and does not run DOS), and the first to be launched was Cubic 99. Later they move it to the XT platform and called it: "CT"!

    and of course, CT was later (was it?) de-acronymized (sp?) into Creative Technology...

    wait wait, we are moving off the topic, i was asking who *collects* vintage hardware, of course we can share the nostalgia trips we had...

    my first PC is by Canon in the 80s.

    14" CGA monitor.
    2 5.5 inch floppy discs.
    no harddisk.
    got a turbo button to "overclock" from 4Mhz to 7Mhz.

    use it to play games like
    1) alleycat
    2) KOEI romance of the three kingdom.

    cost more than $3k. my father must have saved for a long time to get me this PC.

    I binned my original IBM PC last year (8088, 4.77 Mhz, 5Mb hard disk, Mono display) as I didn't have room for it anymore, it was still working and cost me a bomb in '83.

    Still have my original modem, a 70/10 accoustic coupled job from the late 70s.

    Tossed out my Altair II 20 odd years ago.
