Now with my Amiga, all I want to do
is running MacDraw underneath OS/2,
to write all my data on ROM-type CD,
and display EGA on projection TV.
I'd like to plug hypercard into my VAX,
run my parallel printer on standard coax;
Use it all under MS-DOS version 3.2,
and a VCR on RS-232.
My Cray running friendly interfaces with ease,
to movie film shown on a 13-foot screen;
My plotter and laser should speak Postscript well,
networked on Appletalk under Novell.
Autocad my Atari, VGA TTL;
tied to my Apple ][ running Excell.
Lay optic fiber, shaped in a token ring
with a scanner and tablet - I forget anything?
Put all this together - take an hour or two;
hide those ugly cables, and when you are thru
write up a contract saying you'd guarantee
it'll all work forever, or you'd fix it for free.
Would you put this system together for me
some I ordered by mail and parts I got free.
The pieces all work, except two or three.
Please, Mr. Compatibility.
