Bah! Only Ameri-centric options!

My first computer was an ABC80. Developed in Sweden and manufactured by the Swedish company Luxor, famous for it's lamps and TVs. It was a Z80based computer with 8kb of memory, and was introduced in the late 70s. Swedish schools bought a lot of ABC computers.

The ABC80 was followed by the ABC800-serie, which featured an extended BASIC language, color graphics as an option, etc etc.

Then there was an ABC1600, which ran it's own version of Unix, and then the whole computerdivision was sold off to Nokia.

    I'm not belgian but I play one on TV.
