Commodore 64 25th anniversary celebration



You must scroll down this page to find the Commodore story because there are other stories covered on the page.

Did you know that the Commodore 64 sold 20-30 million units, and may be the single largest-selling computer ever?

I had a Commodore 128, which was backwards-compatible with the C64. I loaned it to my older daughter, from whom it was stolen. Since then, someone gave me a C64, which I have on the shelf somewhere.

Do we have any former C64 users here?:)

Karl was a C64 owner ( I think he even did his Hotel accounts on it lol) after which he went on to Amiga(we had loads in our attic 500/500+/600/800/1200 versions I think).

Karl was reticent about buying a PC because he loved the Amiga so much....
Who knows the outcome if he never bought a PC machine.....

I've heard the Amiga is a fine machine. (Of course, newer PCs are more powerful and faster.:))

When I went to a store to buy the Commodore 128, the clerk tried to persuade me to buy an Amiga instead, because it was so much better a machine and better value. I declined, because it was more expensive than my budget would allow, and Commodore 64 software was so widely available because of the customer base of all the users who had bought the C64.

There was a special excitement to using a computer, in the days when so many people were still using typewriters.
