Eh, I know.  

Why is everybody trying to "help" people in this thread?  The point is
that our website isn't totally clear and straight-forward, and some
users who don't know exactly (back when I had a C64, I didn't know what
CPU was inside for most of the time either, neither did I care) are
mistaken.  So giving the correct answer in this thread isn't really
helpful to people visiting our website.
