Anders, Awesome, so when I receive my Canada 64C I should encounter any surprises. :) I used GEOS years ago to make shop test procedures. Then when I went PC I used PageMaker. Pretty amazing what they were able to accomplish with so little RAM. I wish programmer today would program this efficiently. But then if they had, PC wouldn't have advanced like they have. Hmmm... maybe that wouldn't have been a bad thing... lol.

Syntax? I do know the Keyboard is. As far as I know, all Commodore 64 are equipped with Basic V2 using English-like keywords. There are some homemade hacks to translate the keywords to other languages but those are mostly for fun. Imagine the trouble trying to type in a listing where keywords are listed in a foreign language. In Europe there were some keyboard variations. Some were inofficial hacks while others were modified by the importer with Commodore's good knowledge. It would involve replacing keycaps, Kernel and Char ROMs. However I doubt there ever was an official French layout. As a side note, I'm not even sure French Canadians and other French speaking people in North America use the AZERTY layout as found in France. You made a brief mention to GEOS as well. I've never been into GEOS, and it may be possible there exists language packs for that one, but since it is not the native operating system of a C64 anyway, it has less importance in this matter.
