???: Galaksija


Like the russian RK-86 clone series the history of the Galaksija started with a magazine article - it was called "Računara u vašoj kući" (computers in your home) by Dejan Ristanović. This magazine was the first issue of the magazine series called later "Računara". This first issue included an article about the do-if-yourself computer "Galaksija" written by Voja Antonic. The original article is still available [here].

The magazine sold very well and according to [DR] more that 100.000 copies of the magazine were sold and about 8000 people actually built the computer.

First of all the Galaksija was ment to be a do-if-yourself computer only but after the tremendous success of the magazine article it was also available in assembled form.

According to [MODGC] there was also a "Galaksija plus" - a ordinary Galaksija with 48KB of RAM, a high resolution graphic mode and three-channel sound generator.

???: Orao


Zoran Majcenic (who also kindly send me the picture of the Orao) has quite some detailed infos about the "Orao"-Computer:

"In 1985 in Croatia (then Yugoslavia), for purposes of education, a microcomputer called Orao (Eagle) was made for elementary schools. I believe that 2 per school were produced (so they are rare). It is a computer with 16 or 32 kb of memory, 6502 processor, internal speaker, 256x256 monochrome display, built-in BASIC and MONITOR programs. It can be connected using antenna or VIDEO connector. PSU is integrated in its casing so you just directly plug it in power outlet."

According to Karlo Siljeg "Orao" was made by a company called PEL Varazdin, Velebit was the distributor. Velebit also distributed a number of Apple II Compatible computers called "Impuls". Impuls was a Apple II compatible made by Ivel. Ivel was a company which made oil equipment. It manufactured microcontrollers and branched out in making Apple II compatibles. The company was based in the town of Ivanjic Grad. The Ivel micro was aslo distributed under the Ivel name as Ivel Ultra. The Ivel micro was one of the "standard" machines by the education board and they which were distributed in Croatia (then Yugoslavia) by the education department as Impuls. The company Velebit which imported Apple's into Croatia also distributed Ivels and Orao machines.
