You gave not clear information:
1. PC traditionally called x86 or even at least 386 systems, both
Osborne was 8080 compliant.
2. Osborne-1 and Osborne-2 where the same architecture machines, with OS
hardware architecture from software. And their OS did it better than
Linux I have on my machine.
3. Osborne effect made problems for Osborne but not suppliers, because
Osborne did not supply
components, but the entire computers made of unique components.
I hope you did not encripted an information you gave in your message.
Perhaps mr. Osborne could use better market strategy, which sometimes
may require some
review of previously designed principles.
I remember machines in same class with Osborne not so far ago were sold
even in here where do I live.
It was market for them after Osborne itself left the market.
