The Computer History Museum is committed to preserving and presenting the history and stories of the Information Age which I think is really awesome.

If you’re ever in Mountain View, California, you should really check it out. I’ve been to the museum 3 times so far and I’ve seen something new at every visit.

Anyway, the Computer History Museum had a 25th Anniversary Celebration for the Commodore 64 and it was awesome!

Below is an an hour and a half video giving you a taste of the celebration. I will warn you, it starts off slow, but after you get about 14 minutes into the video, things pick up. Enjoy:

Here are a few fun facts about the Commodore 64 computer:

  • The Commodore 64 was an 8-bit home computer released by Commodore International in August, 1982.
  • During it’s lifetime (between 1982 and 1994), sales totaled close to 17 million units, making it the best-selling single personal computer model of all time.
  • Approximately 10,000 commercial software titles were developed for the Commodore 64 including development tools, office applications, and games.
