On the history of the Amiga

Posted on: October 1, 2007

After a tip from my friend Daniel, I’ve been following this series over at Ars Technica on the history of the Amiga (and the people who created it). It’s well written and offers a lot of interesting insight in the early days of platform. I’d recommend it to anyone interested in the history of personal computing, for as the author points out, the platform had a huge following and a very big impact on the industry, yet is rarely mentioned in the bestsellers on computer history.
