Disappointed? In what way? Pity you can't hit the "undelete" button ... might have been something amusing.
Of course technology evolves. But my (oft stated) point is that we should take what we need, and discard what we don't. Just because something is (technically) possible, doesn't mean that we have
to have it (... can someone please pass that message on to our so-called government ... if, that is, you can find anyone there with an ability to listen).
PS: I've got a couple of nice Acorn Electrons, if you're interested.
