I find the simulator can be very useful at times, especially when writing
code before the target hardware is available or the emulator components are
back ordered.

Why?  The 877, 876, etc are nice chips and there is nothing wrong with
learning on them first if that's what you have available.

Much of your advice was sound, but I take exception to presenting your
personal superstitions as universally aggreed on facts without labeling them
as such.
