The first computer I programmed was an univac 1110 :)  fortran + punched
cards :)
Then I discovered commodore (pet2001 in 1979) then I started to dream...

Then came the pc... I woke up I hoped it would have just been a nightmare.

Even if I have pc I don’t like it,
It is powerful, but the software are so badly designed that I waiting for
the pc almost
As much as the commodore 8000...

Starting avr studio 5  almost 10 sec
Starting crossworks  less than 3 secs... 
(to do almost the same thing)

It was taking around 5 sec to start MAE on my commodore 8000

I have a macbook nice little machine but I hate apple policy....

So  I dream to have my cbm8000 back :)

I could have typed this on windows 7 / macosx, freebsd, linux
And I'm thinking to install menuet :)

The last machine that made me dream were the Sirius S1 and the apricot

Hallo Didier,

> I prefer the real one to a "canada dry" :)

And you typed this on a C128 with SCPU? :)

No offence meant but let's face it: most of us CBM-hackers use a PC 
for developing programs, sending/receiving emails, etc. etc. As OS 
most used are Windows, Linux and MacOS AFAIK. I could be wrong but 
I think there are much more Linux users then Windows users amongst 
us then what is averge in this world. Amongst technos Linux is 
considered much better the M$ Window$. I am a Windows user for 
various reasons, mainly because I grew up with DOS and W3.11 in a 
time where there didn't exist Linux.

Lately I gave my oldest son a quite fast PC with the newest Ubuntu 
so he could use it for school exercises. He doesn't need it for the 
moment and I already was thinking to get it back and see what I can 
do with it. And a Commodore interface sure makes it more atractive 
for me to work with it!
