bump since it's not stickied...

however, i would not refer to a C64 as a PC as it was not a complete system. it had no OS, and only a small amount of RAM (no HD, no floppy, etc.).

Early PCs didn't always have an OS. Either way, it's a personal computer. There were word processors, spreadsheets and the like for the C64.

IBM PCs did.... they all ran on DOS (disk operating system). any of the previous kit computers would not be PCs by my definition, either, nor such things as the atari 2600.

C64 was certainly a computer, just not a PC in the sense i refer to them. but oh do i miss my days with the C64! :-

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I have little time for the C64 ... poor relative to the grand Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs' Apple ][, complete with 48kB main memory, and 16kB language card (additional memory). DOS was loaded via the floppy drive into the (1MHz?) 6502 8-bit processor. (The IBM PC was 16 bit.)

Anyone remember the Beagle Bros?

Of course, my first computer experience was the school's Challenger 1P, which had 1kB of RAM (but there were a couple that had expanded RAM of 4kB). Then my university had one of the first computers in the world, it was still on display and functioning: card readers!

Anyway, back on topic:

I had about 400 360kB 5.25" diskettes of games for the Apple ][, including all the Infocom adventures and many, many arcade and adventure games. There is no way I could even name all the Fantasy games on the Apple, even with my old catalogue ...

tales of the unknown (aka the bard's tale) on the C64 is one of my fondest memories. my brothers and i (both younger) would stay up till 6 in the morning playing them... 20 years ago. *sigh*...

sorry to hijack the thread r-p, but this keeps it pseudo-stickied!

Heh, that's fine with me taks. The conversation's pretty interesting, even, and it'll be a little longer until I update this with NWN2 info so help yourselves ;)
