Commodore 64 News Story

This is from last weekend's CNN Website. The C64 is fondly remembered two decades later by kids who grew up gaming on it, but my brother used it as his sole word processor right through law school, and we did as much traffic engineering on it as I'd done with the PC years earlier, albeit more slowly. The $800, one-piece, simple-to-run C64 is the true ancestor of the XO laptop and the EEE PC.
