Commodore 64 mentioned in Yahoo News (11/9/2011)
It is an article called 'The Best Products to Come in Second Place'.
"To add another wrinkle into the debate of the best OS not being the most popular, there are also Linux users willing to go toe-to-toe with "distros" such as Red Hat and Ubuntu. Peer back in time a bit and you will also find plenty of computer geeks (and we use term affectionately) who can make a persuasive case for the Commodore 64 (made between 1982 and 1994, with a modern iteration now available) having not only state-of-the-art hardware at a consumer-friendly price, but a graphical approach that rivaled, if not surpassed, even Apple's."
Notice the 'modern iteration' link that takes you to the Commodore USA web site.
