Jesus, guys, I have no interest in fighting or re-fighting a 40 year old 
war over processors.

I picked the 8080 because it's what I first programmed (IMSAI 8080). If 
you want, pretend I said 6800 or 6502. Anything available in 1974/1975. 
No, you can't pick the 6809 because that came years later.
