jira writes “On the occasion of the Commodore 64′s rebirth as an Atom-equipped nettop, the Guardian’s Jon Blyth remembers what the original Commodore 64 taught him. Among other things: ‘But look at it, all brown, ugly and lovely. It taught me so much. The Commodore 64 taught me about zealotry. After upgrading from the inferior ZX Spectrum, I would try to convince the Sinclair loyalists to follow me. I would invite them to my house, and let them see that with just eight colors and a monophonic sound chip, their lives lacked true depth. My evangelism quickly faded into impatience. So, I can now see why American Baptists get so miffy about atheists — it’s horrible dealing with people who don’t realize how much better you are.’”
