Hardware, Embedded Systems Like a first love or a first car, a first computer can hold a special place in people's hearts. For millions of kids who grew up in the 1980s, that first computer was the Commodore 64. Twenty-five years later, that first brush with computer addiction is as strong as ever. "There was something magical about the C64," says Andreas Wallstrom of Stockholm, Sweden."

I still regret deeply that I let my father sell it, when we bought a PC... even now that I have one again, I just miss those games that I had at the time, and forgotten the name of, so I can't even look for them on the net.

"The memories that people have of this machine are incredible," McCracken said.


That's so true. Just ask a ne... software engineer in my generation about the C64, and you'll definitely have a subject for quite a long time.

But... too bad they misspelled the name ;)
