How many computers used the Z80? Well, at least more than 200, and this site has them listed...
Yes, Zilog still makes Z80s! Excellent!
Wikipedia's Z80 page has good stuff.
The Z80 Official Support Page will give you years of Z80 reading pleasure.
MyZ80 will give you the Z80 experience on a modern day PC. It is one of many Z80 / CP/M emulator solutions out there.
Check out the WinApe Amstrad emulator for a Z80 experience in a mainstream home retrocomputer emulation.
If all of this is not enough for you, and you want a Z80 FPGA core (for free!), have at look at the T80 page on the Opencores.org site.
