Fuck no.
The C 64 is beloved and well known here, very much so.
But when the Amiga and Atari ST came around, and started to make some gains, the Macs and IBMs pulled ahead, with the IBM becoming mega ubiquitous, of course. It's a shame , because I think the Amiga was far superior to any of these platforms in the mid to late 80's and very early 90's.

Pyro: Video Toaster is big in video production circles? In the general public, this was unknown. But as for the context of this nostalgia blog entry, I am correct.
These programs/machines were famous or ubiquitous, and the general public knew them. I don't agree with Lemmings being on the list, It's not that famous, really.
