TL;DR

I found an old Commodore 64 manual.

A few days ago I was moving some stuff and stumbled upon an old copy of the Italian version of the Commodore 64 manual. It is available here, by the way.

I gave a look at it and remembered how I read it through and through multiple times. In hindsight, I have to say that it was, and still is, an exceptional manual.

I was struck by this (from the English version, but it’s the same in Italian):

Commodore is known as The Friendly Computer company, and part of being friendly is giving you easy to read, easy to use and easy to understand instruction manuals.

I mean… wow, that was really amazing!
