It continually amazes me that the [Z80 is] still in production and
widespread use.

I've got a pile of them upstairs. If I had an EPROM eraser (a
programmer is easy to build) I'd use them instead of Atmel chips.

It could well be the most popular chip ever made for embedded
applications.

That would be the Intel MCS48 family and/or the 8051. The latter is
still in production as an ASIC core.
