I owned a Commodore 128, and it gave good service for years. That's the machine I first used to go online (dialup to Compuserve. You payed by the minute, so it was a quick download of the boards, read the comments offline, then upload any replies).
There was even software (GEOS) that gave the C-128 a GUI, so it handled like a (very low-end) Mac. Cool!
So long, Jack. Your tempestuous time at Commodore led to a lot of great things, even for folks without much money.
