Is it possible to combine all these original works into this Z88 User Guide? Will anybody be out there still using the Z88 when it is finally finished?
These are all questions that at this point there are no answers.
All I can tell you now that if anyone had asked me at the beginning whether I thought there would be a dedicated team of Z88 programmers and that I would be still writing about the Cambridge Z88, I would never had believed them. You only need to look at the successful portable computers. They are of a similar size. Yes they have got additional features that the Z88 may lack like connecting to the internet and are graphical in nature. The Z88 main features of being
- battery powered,
- no boot up time,
- a built-in word processor and spreadsheets
- transferring files to other computers
are still as important today as they were in the 1980's.
