I remember asking Zilog for an "end-of-life" expectation for the Z80 in
consideration for a new design in the 1985 timeframe. They immediately
responded "at least 10 years", and they were being cautious. Time has
proven the design to be very useful, even today.
BTW, no other vendor would give such a long-term outlook at the time... not
Intel, not Motorola, etc.
