I'm amazed that we are able to fight over the use of lower or upper case letters in a name.
What importance does it have ?
Who cares, really ?

Now if we really need to pick a side, I would have to agree with "turbo", since the official litterature is using it.

Cool

Where did you see someone fight? I'm just pointing out that the arguments given aren't worth much. Aoineko talks about the name and Mars2000 tells us about the reference. It kinda made me smile.

I used "fight" in the sense of arguing about ... It was not literal.
Words do have nuances, even in english.

I remember when we had a poll about it: https://www.msx.org/poll/how-do-you-write

(based on the images shown here, I'd personally interpret it as 'MSX turboR' rather than 'MSX turbo R', as the spacing after 'MSX' is larger than the spacing between 'turbo' and 'R', but lowercasing the 't' in 'turbo' seems rather obvious to me.)

@gdx: what's the interest to add/keep deleted pages as links in the wiki, especially when the Wayback Machine can't give an alternative, probably because we don't know the real original link (case of the Manual page)?

1/ Show that it existed and that the wiki was not founded on nothing.
2/ In case the link is back
3/ We can look for an alternative when we know it existed.
4/ This can make someone want to put an alternative when they see that a link is broken.

I think only links that have been hijacked should be removed.

A link to the PC-9801 manual can be found on the PC-9801 page, but it leads to a Google Drive page requiring authorization!
I guess the link to the MSX manual is deliberately no more available. Let's hope someone has a copy on his drive.

If someone is interested: there is an official upload of all MSX Computer Magazine material to archive.org which could be added links to in the wiki page. See https://archive.org/details/msxcomputermagazine
