The machine was hugely successful for its time, helping to encourage personal computing, popularise video games and pioneer homemade computer-created music. [...] BBC News invited Commodore enthusiast Mat Allen to show schoolchildren his carefully preserved computer, at a primary school and secondary school in London."

The problem is that the drive is slow when the software doesn't have a fast loader, like your own programs for example. Or programs/games that consist of a single file.

I'm sure if a game would benefit from an even faster drive they would make a fast(er) loader.

I used a Final Cartridge III and it had the fastest disk loader I have experienced.
