My dad had a Commodore 64. I didn't use it, though. There was too much good stuff to do outside. Now I'm 23 with lots of cool PCs with relatively better programming dexterity. Some of those commands are still fairly understandable, and I'm sure quite a few programs use several similar versions, especially "goto" and small apps. Syntax Error is sometimes rewritten but has generally stayed the same.

Having shiny hardware is pretty good, but the software is the really good stuff. I just spent a bit of today playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, and it was a good day. Lots of fun.
