Actually, I aways thought the CoCo did rather well dispite Lack of 
marketing. When all the other 8 bit machines had rather agressive marketing, 
tons of TV commericals, Celebrty Endorsments (who could forget Bill Cosby 
pumping the TI 99/4A), The CoCo contiuned to sell for at least 10 years! 
Infact, the only TV comericals I ever remember from the CoCo were just Radio 
Shack Comericals, that had the CoCo as part of what ever was on sale. I 
could be wrong, but that was just up here in Canada! The CRTC tended to Edit 
American Comericals out with Canadian ones.
