'Re[2]: Code Portablilty ?'
1997\02\24@140822 by Craig Knotts

    Andy's got that one right.  At high volume, even a few cents per part
    adds up to a lot of money.  The company for which I work uses from
    Microchip mostly 16C54's and 16C57's.

Nothing is obsolete until it is no longer needed.

Fortunately, Microchip tolerates the hobbyists, but puts its money where the
real market is - volume.
