Home / Timeline - Timeline
If someone with Wiki experience wants to find an appropriate template for this, please do so. Ideally this would be a timeline of significant events in CoCo history, including introduction of various models and peripherals. It would also be nice to list specific new discoveries (like when the CoCo 3 prototype was first displayed in public, or when the GLOOM demo or Donkey Kong port came out).
A good starting point might be old Radio Shack catalogs, noting what items were announced each year.
