A history of the Amiga, part 1

A history of the Amiga, part 1

The Amiga computer was a dream given form: an inexpensive, fast, flexible multimedia computer that could do virtually anything. It handled graphics, sound, and video as easily as other computers of its time manipulated plain text. It was easily ten years ahead of its time. It was everything its designers imagined it could be, except for one crucial problem: the world was essentially unaware of its existence.

[Sigh] I miss the Amiga. Such a wonderful platform, it truly made computing fun. I don’t think there’ll be anything close to as enjoyable as the Amiga was.
