Those Chinese users may also have come from Europe. There are plenty of Chinese people here after all.

In USA/Canada there was one and only MSX computer: Yamaha CX5M. And it's not really as much of a computer, since it was used as a synth 99.9%.

MSX as a computer platform was completely and utterly pwned by the local megastars: Commodore C=64 and Atari 800. And even those had to go quick as soon as 16-bit computing era hit the streets in 1985.

Dear Europeans: we, North Americans, on average are very rich. Because we are not quasi-commie bleeding heart crack smoking socialist hippies. Deal with it.

All mujiks are in Taiga. I have much more affinity to Lord Vlad Tepes aka Dracula, then to Vodka, Kremlin/Lenin and gravity-defying dancing cossacks.

Happiness is something you can't buy with money, unless it's crack. So no, I'm not happy Smile

BTW: This got really way offtopic, so I will voluntarily stop posting here Smile

I guess any MSX product was unfeasible ever since Chinese engineers created famicom-on-a-chip ASIC design somewhere in late 80-s, thus opening gates for massive Nintendo game library at a very accessible price.

Sometimes I happen to get to Hong Kong for a few days. I was never able to find any MSX products there. I'm wondering whether these three letters are known there at all?

But then again: I might have looked in the wrong places WinkHope it as well, and I'll continue looking for it Wink
