I also have a small contribution: 1. I read on another historical review that ESCOM sold everything but the Commodore logo to GateWay (meaning the 8-bits as well). 2. That history also mentioned that Tramiel marketed the VIC-20 (then the VIC-1001) to Japan first in order to head off the Japanese at the pass. It effectively shut down the Japanese work on a low end home computer for the American market, which probably saved us all from talking about the great Sony and Toshiba computers of the 1980's. I thought that was pretty significant. Regarding the historical document in general, it's fantastic. It's the first I've seen with any real commentary thrown in, which really adds to the enjoyability. - Bo Zimmerman On 31-May-99, Martijn van Buul wrote: >Cameron Kaiser wrote: > >> Warning: it's very long.
