Another federversal generation poll. Please boost.

I am from the /x/ generation:

@drwho
I'm more an #MSX rather than #C64 user, so LOAD "*",8,1 would be BLOAD "CAS:<filename>",R for me. ;)

@FiXato I've heard of MSX's but only seen what look like renders of them. Never read about them in any books growing up.

What were they like?

@drwho not that different from the #C64 I guess, though what was the biggest difference I guess, is that #MSX is a standard, rather than a specific brand/model.
Where a #Commodore64 was always a #Commodore, an MSX model could be made by #Philips, #Sony, #Sanyo, #Panasonic, #Canon, #Mitsubishi, etc.
Each of them having the same minimum specs, but differing in style, build quality, peripherals, more RAM, extra soundchips, etc, but all with the promise of being able to run the same software.

@FiXato
