Huh.  I totally didn’t see this coming.  I’d thought the Commodore brand was long dead, but apparently it’s been kicked around for years and now it’s being used to get in on PC gaming market.  I have fond memories of my Commodore Amiga 1000 back in the day.  I hope they do well.

Dude, I still have my C-64 *and* my Amiga all boxed up nicely in my shed.
That Amiga Rocked for it’s Time.

You’re not the only one, Enas. I have happily rediscovered my formative years through the magic of emulation and every once in awhile I’ll fire up CCS64 and relive the eight bit glory days. Don’t have the old girl herself anymore, though. I used that thing so hard in the eight or nine years that we had it that it would lock up hard if it was even breathed on heavily.

I gave away my Amiga in the early ’90s for partial payment of some debt, but I later aquired an IBM XT with dual 5 inch floppy drives. I still have it along with some software in my garage.

I’ve decided that I’m going to hang on to it and eventually pass it down. Someday on “Roadshows 2085” some descendent will show up with this thing and they will tell him that “While very popular and influential in it’s day, there are few of these still around and in such wonderful condition! Collectors highly value this particular rarer dual-floppy edition. Not only that, but you have software floppy disks for it too! In their origninal boxes! In an auction this antique computer and software set will probably get something between $100,000 – $200,000!”

“Wow! I had no idea. Thanks Great-Uncle-Enas!”
