Can’t see what all the fuss is about myself, I’m afraid. The computing devices that got kids interested in the 80s were advertised on TV and in comics and magazines that kids read, launched along with appealing examples of what you could do with them (yes, mostly games, but of a quality beyond that which most people had seen in their homes before), and, crucially, came with *superb* manuals that taught you how to program, from scratch.
