    It used the same case as the PET? Surely you mean VIC20?

    Yes. Yes, I do.

    (For those who don't remember: the PET was an all-in-one design rather like the terminals in Fallout 3, with the display built in to the casing; the VIC-20 was the more familiar computer-in-keyboard design affectionately known as the 'breadbin.')

    Lol. Yes, he is my great uncle (my grandfather's brother). I only mention his lack of mention because he seems to be the unsung hero of Commodore. Most articles skim over his involvement if they mention it at all, yet he was the engineering force that brought it all together.

    Anywho, otherwise a great shout out to a monolith of the tech industry. It's unlikely, but just imagine what things would be like if the products produced by the modern computer industry were as revolutionary...

    Still remember Ace and Hawkeye, 2 brilliant games I would buy in a shot if they ever came to smartphone or Xbox Live Arcade.
