I grew up on the Commodore 64 in Paradise California as a child in the late 80s.   We got ours late but there was more secondary devices such as a Hard Drive which is noisy as heck when turned on that we have a whole bunch of software stored on it.

Our Commodore 64 model has a mode called Jiffy Dos ever heard of it? It is a little switch on the side that let's programs load in just 1 minute!    I didn't even know a lot of C64 floppy disk users had to suffer long waiting times actually!


Dad also programmed a custom menu system that is pretty nice so I wouldn't have to do the comma 8 comma 1 loading sequence since I was very young then.    I did a lot of education software on the Commodore at home.  At that time it was very rare for people to have home computers that were actual computers not game machines.

His menu system I just used the F keys to scroll/click on a game/software.

Commodore 64 had a LOT of great potential and was the true competitor to Nintendo since Nintendo only did games.  Nintendo tried to do education software in order to compete but didn't quite have the knack for it so soon gave up that lineup  or they would've embarrassed themselves into oblivion.

By the way I love this font!  :)    It feels like using Commodore BASIC all over again!  

You should get the Commodore 64 BASIC guide to their language which is basically C++ in a simpler format without the run arounds.
