That's only true if you're using a 6502
cross-assembler in the PC environment. If you want to
do your development in the C-64 environment (as I do)
you're stuck with 40-columns.

Developing on a C-128 or on a real C-64 with a video
board, accelerator and HD will be a better solution

I don't believe the advent of emulation has encouraged
much new development for the C-64. Development is tied
to hardware. Emulators are really good for playing old

I won't be happy until I can connect my Super-64 to my
cable modem and browse the web with full graphics.
That will only happen with new hardware. Until then,
I'm stuck with this cursed, icky Windoze box.
