Hi from the Pacific Northwest!

Hi everyone!  I've been following the development of the Commander X16 since its announcement, and I'm very impressed with the progress.  I've been trying to teach myself 6502 assembly so I can write software for the X16 at the lowest possible level.  I've been a bit busy the past few months, but finally feel I have the time to pick it up again.  I have a few ideas for software that I'd like to write, and have started learning the basics so I can make it happen.  I'm hoping that the Commander X16 can be my 5 year old daughter's very first computer (we don't even give our kids phones or tablets), so she can explore computing from the ground up.  I love the ethos and mission of the project, and feel that this computer is going to be the most approachable way for kids (and adults) to learn about computers.

I'm happy and grateful for such a wonderful community!

Welcome, I feel the same way. When I started studying Computer Science in 2004, I noticed all the cracks started with the C64 and alike. All the non cracks didn't. To me, these old machines are still magic. Magic that I can understand and control. I hope your daughter will develop that same feeling.
