PDP-11... now there was a nice machine! That's where I first learned
Assembly language--and I definitely was spoiled by that. Now when I
look at assembler for, e.g. 80x86 machines I want to throw up. Nothing
has been anything as nice to program in since with the possible exception
of the 68000 family which had a lot of similarities.
