THE COMMODORE 64: One decision in fifth grade changed my life. It was finally time to get a home computer. I could get either a Coleco ADAM, and build my ColecoVision out to a full computer, or a Commodore 64. I got the C64, I learned to program on it, learned to love computer graphics, followed that passion into the Commodore Amiga and college, and from there into graphic design and ultimately photography, parallel with a career in computer programming. And one hell of a game machine.
The Commodore 64, commonly called C64, C=64 (after the graphic logo on the case) or occasionally CBM 64 (for Commodore Business Machines), or VIC-64, was an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982 by Commodore International.
