When I got my Spectrum +2A for Xmas in 1987, this come along with it: ftp://ftp.worldofspectrum.org/.....Manual.pdf
Now it'd be unfair to say something along these lines should be included, but could we have something like this as an optional extra? This manual covered how to program the computer in BASIC, touched on machine code, and laid out the memory map (so you knew what to POKE or OUT in order to update gfx, change border etc.)
Spectrum Users: We were spoilt!
That's a difficult one. The spectrum (and the BBC micro) were relatively limited machines with a simple instruction set, no real OS, and few peripherals. (I had an original BBC so I know!)
A Raspi, on the other hand, can run any compute language you can think off, has all sorts of multimedia features, has a full time network connection, and runs a sophisticated multitasking OS.
There is so much more that you could document it makes it very difficult to know where to start!
