There's nothing to be afraid of.
I was asking from a position of ignorance because I've not used either.
I have some colleagues at work that use the Raspberry Pi. So I know of,
but not about, it.
I was seriously excited about the Retron77 (Atari
2600) that was recently
released, but on getting it, I found that it wasn?t able to play a
fair number of the cartridges I?ve tried with it.
DOS games never had *KNOWN* set of hardware they?d be
as a result I think they?re likely more forgiving.
Now despite what I just said about the Raspberry Pi, I have three of
them around here, one is a small VAX running OpenVMS 7.3, one is a DPS-8
running Multics, and the other a KL-10B running TOPS-20. I had dreams
of building a VMS cluster of RPi 3+?s, but have kind of gone off that
idea, due to the superior performance I get using my VMware Cluster to
host VAX instances.
I'll have to check out the DPS-8 and KL-10B.
