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 don't think the home computer failed. Remember no system ever exceeded sails of the C=64.

But in all fairness, the steam-driven computer quickly obsoleted the old wind-powered computers. I think the golden age of sails is possibly over...
