ADAM software start-up screens

When I was young, personal computing was still in its infancy.  Everything was still fairly new including music and graphics on a computer screen or in my case, television screen.  Watching an animation or beautiful graphic appear on screen while I waited for a program to load kept my attention.  The following video are some of those load screens.  Keep in mind, I edited the video in such a way that it appears the load times are faster than they really are.

Back in the late 1970’s, early 1980’s, you had to be very patient when using a computer.  Loading a program from a digital data cassette or floppy disk was not a fast process.   Today, if an application doesn’t start-up within a few seconds, I usually uninstall it from my hard drive and look for something else.


About Coleco ADAM

I’m Justin M. Salvato, a fan and collector of vintage computers. This blog is dedicated to the very first computer I have ever owned: The Coleco ADAM. It is also my favorite. The goal of the blog is to provide information about the ADAM as well as the software and hardware that were created for this vintage computer system.
