Home computers were one of best things about growing up in the 1980’s as far as I’m concerned. I knew I wanted to do something with computers when I grew up from a very early age, so my old Vic-20 and Commodore 64 helped me on my way to achieving that goal.
Most families probably had a home computer at some point, normally bought for the kids by Dad who used the excuse “it’ll help with their homework” to get it passed Mum. Of course, he wanted to fiddle with it himself really.
I think you could probably count the number of times it helped with my schoolwork on the fingers of one hand, but it taught me to program and I loved playing games (and still do).
This week I’m expecting the final answer to be a landslide victory…
