(if you still can't figure it out, the Dragon computers originated from Wales)

A fair amount of clones Ie Cuthbert in the Jungle (pitfall) and Andrew Braybrook cut his teeth on a Dragon before going onto better things with the C64.

Anyhow Dragon User limped on for 69 issues believe it or not so there was some hardcore interest in the machine at the time :D
