The DSO has been high on my want list for some time now.. But that said, I
made it through several Commodore machines & drives, the CRT display on the
Osborne Vixen, the Altair rebuild, several Macs and on, with what I do have

Lacking a DSO didn't prevent me from getting through that stuff, but I'm
sure it slowed me down more than once.
