My people and your people

I happened upon this during the housework today and it gave me a giggle. The Commodore 64 is the same age and used the same processor as the BBC Micro. But the where the userbases typically stood on techie issues was miles apart, as we see from the back of this covertape.

Now that's a leisure machine, baby!

It wouldn't have helped that the Commodore's BASIC was so unfriendly. But I still got a few good things out of Commodore publications, like a joystick tester program, a quick line-art Etch-A-Sketch thingy and pointers to using nice PETSCII graphics.
