Believe it or not, Commodore 64 is still being used for commercial purposes. Analogik has discovered this truly rare occurrence at MYER Centre main bus station terminal - Brisbane, Australia. Someone must have reset the computer and at our shocking surprise a familiar blue screen appeared on the display. In commodore 64 days blue screen used to be a good sign, not a sign of dead Windows 98/2K. How reliable C64 is proves the fact that it is still being used to inform travelling people of 21st century.

I came across this a good while ago, great to see the C64 is good enough for them. It makes a nice change then seeing Winows blue screen at airports etc.!

...although, if you look carefully, you can see that it booted up without its full allocation of 38911 BASIC BYTES FREE, so it seems to have glitched ever so slightly. :)
