Biggest mistakes? Let's see...

Over-reliance on the 6809 to do everything is high on my list.

Ignoring standards by using ASCII HT (horizontal tab) for reverse line
feed (and generating it when the up arrow key is pressed) isn't the
biggest mistake, but it's definitely the stupidest.

Waiting until 1986 to come out with the CoCo 3.

Backward compatibility constraints on the CoCo 3. (IMHO that's what
killed off the TC-09, too.)
