They had this solution in their back pocket. They didn't want to use this solution because it necessitates modifying the keyboard connector. I don't think you understand at all what their starting point was. All I have done back to you is point out that 1) problems generally don't have a single solution and 2) solutions rarely don't have drawbacks.Black_Cat wrote: ↑Mon Jun 24, 2019 2:43 amI think that the developers of ZX Next have read my predictions of their future, and made the only right decision. Don't thank me for predicting a future that saved kickstarter users from another year of waiting, or an even more disastrous future. As you can see, the truth said in time "And the king is naked!" has done far more good than all your enthusiastic praise.
You didn't predict shit! You were not doing anyone a service, You have simply been trolling with the Soviet way is the only way.
I have a ZX Evolution. I have a Byte. I have some idea what the evolution of the ZX Spectrum has been in the East. I also have dev board ZX Next and have explored the hardware as it has developed. I have a pretty good notion of the differences and am aware of where I would consider the ZX Evolution better and where I would consider the ZX Next better. I seriously doubt that you have done anything at all with a ZX Next.
