Dragon Data Ltd
Dragon 32

The DRAGON 32 enjoyed a pretty good success in Europe. Its ROM holds the Operating System and a version of the Microsoft Extended BASIC.

One of its characteristics is partial compatibility with the Tandy TRS 80 Color Series. They can use same peripherals and some cartridges, but most ROM calls will fail on the other computer.
However, the Dragon did have at least two advantages over the first TRS-80 Color computer: A typewriter-style keyboard that was somewhat better than the tandy's calculator-like keys; and a Centronics parallel-printer port.

Two years later, Welsh launched the DRAGON 64 which has the same characteristics except the added memory (64k RAM instead of 32k), a RS232c port and minor ROM changes.

First, and only home computer, was a 32 and kept it until 2000. Initially bored from playing Space Invaders non-stop for a week, I started programming. What a world that opened up! BASIC followed by machine code, dabbling in graphics, audio, and hardware interfacing. Luckily my first job used a product line with a 6809 CPU for analog and digital interfacing!
