Casette software?

Postby geoffdaddy » Thu Jul 31, 2014 11:12 am

Are there any MP3/WAV recordings of PC and PCjr software out there somewhere?

I did, right after I sent that. :)

Was there any software for the PC released on Cassette?

There was a recent thread at the Vintage Computer Forums where this was discussed. The net result was that there was an advertisement for some sort of typing tutor program, but nobody could prove it actually shipped. The reasoning given for the discrepancy is that magazine advertising slots were reserved weeks/months in advance, so it was possible that at the time the ad copy was created they intended to ship on cassette, but by the time the magazine was printed that did not happen.

Diagnostics and Advanced Diagnostics for the PC were the only two things I know of on cassette. (And I need to get the Advanced Diagnostics posted - I got that from a third party.)
