I grew up in the Eighties. I think my first exposure to a computer was – probably like many people my age – a BBC Micro at school. But that wasn’t the computer i used most as a child. No, while everyone else played with their Spectrums, Commodores and Ataris, our home computer was one my peers had never heard of – a Dragon 32.
The Dragon’s 30th anniversary was last year and i’ve just found this lovely piece on the history of the machine’s development at the Register. It’s nice to learn that the Dragon 32 was more popular than i thought possible growing up.
And now i’m kind of itching for a game of Cuthbert in the Cooler.
