Symptomatic of the problem inherent in closed and
semi-closed architectues like the A1200 and C64.
Eventually you want to expand, but how?

I think I read somewhere that the expansion port was
originally intended to house a BASIC enhacement cart,
because Commodore intended to dump BASIC 2.0
eventually. The SuperExpander was released, but
Simon's BASIC was far superior.

Then, came the REU. Now, how did Commodore expect
users to write REU software with the new BASIC? You
can only have one cart plugged in at a time.

This is where the Apple II really has an advantage
over the C-64. 7 slots available and each gets its own
I/O block and seperate variable block. Pretty damn
slick if you think about it.
