Apple, Commodore and Atari computers all used the Motorola chip. I agree the cpm85 was a much better OS.

Ps I was using tape prior to HDs and floppies!

The Radio Shack Color Computer also used a Motorola chip the 6809E

I think mine originally had 16KB (KILO bytes) it was good enough that I wrote my Masters thesis on a CoCo.

Mario, yes I remember tape with my TI-99/4A - my first computer, which makes me a little bit of a late starter.

I actually sold my aftermarket user styles on either a 5.25" or 3.5" floppy disk for a while with a DOS installer for PC because the Windows version hadn't come out yet.

My how things have progressed. It's like comparing a Model T to a 21st century Ford Explorer.

I'm guilty of using tape also (both magnetic and paper punch), not for music but for programs and data.

Of course we have what we have now as a result of the progress made from what we had then.

Fairly certain I didn’t buy or use LOGO. I have used LISP, PL1 and a few other obscure languages, never used outside certain places, none on these on CoCo obviously. I’ve also written many thousands of lines of real-time FORTRAN (yes, without GOTO’s) but that’s like saying “I wrote books with a reed stylus on a wet clay tablet” LOL).

I was running OS9 on the CoCo by time I built first ‘x86, OS9 even on that slow clocked 6809 processor was putting DOS on a much faster x86 to shame. But the handwriting was on wall, 'x86 was going to be "it," at least for mainstream industry, science & tech & Gov't (aka work) so I simply moved on.

To me it's amazing how quickly different technologies came to replace the floppy disk.

Those magnetic-optical disks came and went, along with zip and jaz disks, CD-R and RW, and even some BD-RWs.

And now we have little USB flash drives.

The flash drives are great, and I wonder what's next?

Yep...so many memories!!! I go back to '93
Bought a custom built desktop that had a 250MB hard drive (yes... you read that right - "MB")
4MB of ram
2 floppy drives
Pentium 486 processor.

For this "state of the art" mean machine I paid just over $2,000.

Remember when you booted up the computer and it came to an MS-Dos prompt where you would type in "win" to get Windows 3.0 running?

And now I have a confession to make and I'm hoping that PG Music doesn't prosecute me and throw my butt in jail for the rest of my life. eek Back then every piece of software came on 3 1/2" floppy disks. There really wasn't anything stopping someone to just make copies of the software to share with friends. The words "pirate software" wasn't invented yet.(at least I didn't hear it and I really wouldn't have known what it meant anyway) There were no serial numbers needed to install BIAB, or just about any other piece of software. Even Win 3.0 could be copied and installed without anything that tried to stop you from doing that.

I did change my ways once I realized that the practice was becoming illegal and I have bought any software that I've owned and used over the years.

And so I had my very first "copy" of BIAB in '93 It came with what seemed like a hundred floppies containing all the styles. I used Power Tracks Pro to edit the BIAB files. I would then record my masterpieces with a Yamaha 4 track cassette recorder... another machine marvel of it's time.
