I still think it would've been a smash hit if Commodore already around 1982/83 had developed an IBM PC compatible with a PET hardware emulation ISA board and obviously also floppy drives capable of reading both 4040, 8050, 8250 and PC formatted 360K floppy disks. They may have thrown in a SID chip too, just to show off like they did in the CBM-II series. However I don't know how the CBM-900 or Amiga Lorraine lines would have fitted in this scenario where Commodore already would be producing PC compatibles with full PET compatibility. Regarding the XT-IDE, I bought two kits but after soldering them none worked. One boots up but doesn't detect any HDD, the other card doesn't even boot up. I chalk that down to my 50% success rate when it comes to soldering, although I'm sure they can be fixed somehow.
