Linux on ARM or NETBSD on VAX... in recovery, or maybe PDP-8 or PDP 11?
The old RCA CDP1802 keeps dragging me back.
I seriously stopped messing with intel with 8080/8085 jumping to Z80
and 8048/8051 for the single chips and then going off to PIC and Atmega.
Looked at 8086 and decided it was a 8080 with a bag on the side.
It was and still is irrational.
Disassembly for 8085 is dirt simple as the opcodes are easily classified
and decoded. Its easy enough to do in a word processor, find and replace.
