There is one HUGE difference, Eric. System i is the best platform on the
planet today, and you can actually BUY one new!

I cannot buy a Commodore 64, or an AS/400, or an iSeries - new.

Wanna compare the Commodore 64 computer to the System i? This article
from CNN provides lots of material and ideas so you can write an article
on how the System I, just like the Commodore 64, is still loved after
all these years!

(CNN) -- Like a first love or a first car, a first computer can hold a
special place in people's hearts. For millions of kids who grew up in
the 1980s, that first computer was the Commodore 64. . . .



Wallstrom is the webmaster and designer for C64.com, a Web site
dedicated to preserving the games, demos, pictures, magazines and
memories of the Commodore 64.

C64.com visitors are mostly nostalgia seekers -- men in their 30s
looking to download their favorite childhood games.
