Um, ask the owner of an Apple ][ about that.  Likewise my Synertek
SYM-1 used an 8-bit 6502 processor, as did designs by Atari,
Commodore, etc.  Then there were a number of designs built around the
Zilog Z80, by Radio Shack, Sinclair, and others.  Intel's line never
caught on beyond the industrial and hobbyist markets until the 8086,
but there were plenty of others.  CP/M's market was 8-bit machines.

Typically when a software vendor says that a product is "intuitive" he
means the exact opposite.
