MSX turned 21 today. Yay! Who would have thought 21 years ago that a computer system could have a huge impact on so many lives. More than 5 million MSX computers were sold, a lot of people still actively using and developing for MSX. When the companies stopped, the scene continued. And we're still going strong. A lot of MSX software and hardware has been released last year, and I'm sure we'll see a lot of interesting stuff going on this year as well. Happy birthday to MSX! Smile

And with the MSX Revival going on right now, companies even consider to return to MSX development as well... Now who would have ever thought that would happen? Happy 21st anniversary to MSX!

Happy anniversary to MSX, and long life too!
I never thought about using my MSX 15 years later!
This machine is part of my life, part of my happy moments.
Let´s give it a hug.

Salu2.

Now that was some neat action, don't you think ? Smile Cool method to get a job, just walk to some Philips building and say: "Hi, I'm your new boss, and YOU are fired" Smile

(and I think I'm not alone on this one Smile )Amen to that one... Smile MSX was a really good way to kinda forget about the bad things I was forced to go through back then.
