Welcome to the Text Only Version of
Last Updated Dec 30 2018

This version of our site is intented for older systems (perhaps Commodore systems!) using Lynx or the new Contiki browser.  Obvisously the content will be severely scaled down and a minor subset of the original source documents on full site to ensure reasonable load times.  All pages (excepting some manuals) should load in less than eight seconds on a 56K connection.  There are no frames, no java, no tables... not much more than plain text and links.  We encourage you to visit our much more complete full site with a modern browser if you are able to.

 The purpose of this site is to present pre-Amiga Commodore Computer History. Contrary to the what Apple revisionists would have you believe, Apple did not create the PC business; without question Commodore did: from the worlds first single board computer (MOS KIM-1); to the first real computer (Commodore PET); to the best selling computer in history (Commodore 64), Commodore 'ruled the pool'.
