The VIC 20 launched the concept of the home microcomputer by offering them a cheap box of plastic that connected to the TV, made pretty sounds and drew pretty pictures. With time, they'd learn the BASIC programming language, then get into Assembler, and then the whole world became better bedroom programmers. The adults would hook up to the bulletin boards and business servers, doing real-time sharedealing, budgeting and running the world using acoustic coupler equipment.

Then the Commodore 64 came along a year later, and the VIC 20 was obsolete, with Quantum Link was the replacement for the working stuff. Meanwhile, in the UK, there was a battle going on over what computer the BBC would choose for its Computer Literacy Project.
