The Vic-20 was my second or third computer, after a C64 and possibly a PC (first shortly running Microsoft software, before I switched to Linux in 1993). I got the first one in 1991 for 50 FIM (about 10 USD). By the way, the C64 started to really enter Finland in 1984 or 1985. I got mine in 1986 maybe after a year after I had seen one. The same year several school mates got one. Nowadays, in the age of the Internet and almost unregulated global marketplace, the market penetration would be much faster. I am not sure if that is a good thing, though. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2016-01-12 07:00:10
