I didn't vote, because I personally enjoyed MSX about all these years, and I can't specify which period was the best.

In fact, I would say 1987-1992, but there was no such option in the poll.

I'm actually surprised by the outcome of the poll.
To me, the amateur years (1990-1995) by far were the best!
Still have nice memories of great fairs in Tilburg and Zandvoort.

But, I think that the poll results give interesting insights if also the age of the voters was taken into account: I'm born mid-seventies, I got hooked to my MSX at the end of the eighties and lost interest in MSX at the end of the nineties. So between my 12th and 22nd year I enjoyed the MSX scene, which does coincide with the amateur years.

If you're born earlier or later, the MSX activity peak will probably shift accordingly.

Just a thought Smile

I voted for the early years as well. Why? Well.. That was the period I actively used my MSX's. I must say I also had a great time with the MEP, but that was more because of the website and the visitors, than because of the "MSX" part of it.
For the rest, the outcome doesn't really surprise me. For most people, MSX was a nice hobby in the '80's and a part of the '90's. I can imagine that most of them, these days now and then play a game through an emulator on their PC, which doesn't give the same feeling anymore as 10 ~ 15 years ago Smile
