Bagger, can't imagine QuickServe being that much better... it really shows how much more vibrant and fun the Commodore was than PCs, at least in the 80s.
Another great headline from the Gazette "News & Notes": "How About Four Megs of RAM?" That must have seemed unimaginably huge to the 64K (like 38K free) Commodore. And now 8Gb, or 8,000 Megs, or 8,000,000K (ok, all roughly) like I have on this Macbook Air is absolutely nothing special. I guess that points out how PCs would ultimately win out in the 90s...
