    Do you remember GEOS? That was the Windows version based for the c64.

    HA!!

    Heck YEAH! I was looking it over just a couple of weeks ago! (yeah.. I have three Commodores out in the garage)

    Wow I never got a Commodore 64 but got a C64c which was a minor upgrade with
    a few changes. The Keyboard housing was more flatter compared to the 64 which was more rounder and bulkier.

    Yep.. I've got a couple 64c's they tend to run considerably cooler than the C64. Other than that, I can't find much of a difference other than the obvious case design. It pulled the keyboard away from the mobo a bit.

    Me too.. Was a blast to skim over. Somehow ended up with a couple of copies. One complete in the original box even. I reallyneed to go through all of the software and stuff that found its way into my garage over the years.

    If I can swing the cost, I would love to bring up the BBS again but spending anything on 64 hardware these days makes you wonder ;-)

    I've seen network adaptors for the 64, but I'm hoping to get one of my Net232's
    working instead but it's a long shot.

    Does anyone have a copy of Geoworks for DOS floating around? I'd love to fire it up in a VM...
