lumping in the 65xx series is silly.
Quite frankly, lumping in the 65xx processors with the 68xx is somewhat disingenuous; while W D Mensch did do a fair amount of design on both, it's quite a leap from 'similarities of design' to 'derivative design'. One might as well lump the 68k series in with the VAX, as the former took many design cues from the latter. --moof 08:10, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
- The Motorola 6800 article doesn't agree with you.
- "Competitor MOS Technology came up with a architectural relative of the 6800, with its 6502 and successors." -- Geo Swan 06:14, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
- I regard the 'cloned' section of the 6800 article to be patent nonsense. What makes things even worse is that most of the info seems directly pulled from the Motorola 6809 article; there's very little substantive info that's in the former that's not in the latter. --moof 07:39, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

merge or move or delete or something!
The deletion debate seemed pretty bogus to me… there is no "68h" series except for in this article. The debate was carried out carelessly with most of the keep comments coming from folks who obviously didn't follow the links, or have no prior knowledge of these chips.
The 6800/6502 families are very similar but slightly different because of incestuous engineering teams. (Namely, Chuck Peddle left Moto for MOS Technologies after the 6800's release.) The 6501 "belonged" in the 6800 family but this resulted in a lawsuit, settled by purposely making the 6502 incompatible. Because of these subtle differences, the processors aren't really in the same family and hence the common term 6800/6502.
Check these google results: 68h microprocessor 6800 6502 -wiki -wikipedia gives 79 hits but the first few obviously mirror us. 6800/6502 gives 342 and 6502/6800 gives 801 (which says something about the relative popularity of the original :vP ).
- Move the article to 6800/6502 microprocessor families until
- It can be merged somewhere more appropriate.
Just browsing through this general neighborhood, all these µP/µC articles could use a good scrub. We need stubs for all the chips mentioned in this article and a category to unify them, more than a (misleading) overview article like this one.

- I agree. This is not an article... delete it. Matan 03:58, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
