The IMSAI was extremely popular when it was new and all through the late
1970s. WarGames made it popular in mainstream culture (to people who
didn't know computers other than Apple / Commodore / Tandy), but it's
not like the IMSAI was uncommon vs. its direct competition of Altair,
Cromemco, SWTPC, etc.
As for "not historic" I think that completely misses the mark.
But as I said, I'll let Bill front that battle. :)
