A long time ago [in a galaxy far away ;-)], Commodore sold a classroom network for the C64. Students' computers were connected to the teacher's file-server through disk-drive cables. I don't remember if CBM wrote networking software for VIC-20s, but obviously, those machines could be plugged into that network. Does anybody remember the details of that product?
