I think we still have one somewhere in my parents basement. I didn't have many games for it though. I think I had a few game show type games like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, possibly Maniac Mansion and Zaxxon I think it was called. Probably had a few more but I don't really recall. I remember thinking the graphics in Zaxxon were amazing at the time.
Sadly no. I pawned it during my incredibly stupid 18-19 year old me period. I wish I still did though. If I did a "Gaming Made Me" article it would be trading floppies for the most recent games. Bruce Lee was my first true platformer/fighting game.
Sure I have it. Working perfectly as usual. Just a few days ago I played a couple of games, Zorro among them

I do own a working one, but it's in a box somewhere in my mother's basement. I get my C64 kicks from emulators these days.
Threw away my VIC 20 and C128. I'm not sure if I threw away my Amiga of it's still at my parents', but either way I'll never use it again.
Yup, all five of them. Currently missing a proper monitors, though.
Never had a C64. Had an Apple //c. I think I have it propping up a bookcase somewhere.
I wonder if people still has a working Desktop using Windows 95 or 98? and are still using it but heavily modifyed.

There are 3 pcs at my inn. My personal one, this one used just for gaming and pestering this forum is Win 7. The other 2, used for reservations and contact forms are WinXP and Win 95. That sounds bad but given what we use them for they do their job just fine.
Still have my both C64, I wonder if they still working :S
I have a soft spot for old computers I'd love to have one, but the C64 was before my time. My earliest computer experience was with Windows 98.

Yes, this guy still uses Windows 95.

I never had a C64, the only non-x86/non-Mac legacy home computer I have is an Amiga 500, but that was acquired recently (though I don't have any software for it).

I think I have advertised my Win98SE retro-PCs quite a few times. They are:

1. Compaq Presario:
- Pentium-133MHz
- 128MB RAM
- 3Dfx Voodoo 4MB
- Soundblaster 16
- Roland SCC-1
- Roland CM-32L

2. A newer AMD Athlon XP PC, which runs Windows 98SE, Windows XP and Munt Linux:
- AMD Athlon 1.66 GHz
- 768MB RAM (restricted to 512MB when running Win98SE, as Win9x starts to have problems with more than that)
- ATI Radeon X800 Pro (256MB of video memory)

3. IBM ThinkPad T41 (runs both Windows 98SE and XP; sometimes I've had also some Linux running on it. but not right now, I have enough other Linux boxes)
- 2GB RAM, restricted to 512MB when running Win98SE
- See the rest of the specs from Google, it is the variant with ATI graphics chipset. Overall it feels about as fast for gaming and stuff as #2 desktop above, maybe even a bit faster. This is actually my main retrogaming PC, it runs early Win9x games great even though it is a laptop.

I don't use any of them online while running Win98SE, though.

As for Commodore 64, I was unfortunate enough to choose another home computer as a kid that didn't do as well. I was envious to three of my friends who had C=64.

That's also why I recognize by name and look many C=64 classics, but I don't necessarily know how they are to play. And SID music leaves me totally cold as I have no emotional attachment to any of them. They sound like bunch of sound farts to me (like some poor amateurish beatbox), mostly.
