Does anyone remember this on the C64c when it was bundled with it? It was my
first taste of Windows.

Hello, and while some vendors may have put bundles together (anyone old
enough to remember Protecto Enterprises?), AFAIK GEOS was a
separately-sold product. I still have GEOS, DeskPack Plus, geoChart,
geoFile and geoCalc for the C-64. Cost a few bucks but IMHO these
products were probably as close as you could get to "killer" apps on a
C-64, given its limitations as a practical small business platform, let
alone home use for MS Office-like stuff. GEOS with its companion apps
did some great Macintosh-like things but oh so slowly if all you had was
one (not advisable) or two 1541 drives. You really needed a 1750 RAM
expansion or the GEOS RAM cart to get things moving. Sincerely,
