Amiga - Everyone has heard of the great early computer wars, when Microsoft and IBM and Apple were fighting to shape the future. But there was another set of computer wars, just as meaningful, that has fallen into obscurity. Few people today remember or have even heard of the Amiga, a computer so groundbreaking that it actually delivered the future, way before those other big guys ever did. Fewer still have heard about the story behind it, with players like Atari and Commodore. Though lost in a dim corner of history nearly every modern computer carries a bit of Amiga's spirit within. Thankfully, writer Jimmy Maher has published an excellent series of articles, and a book, retelling that history and that other set of wars to shape the future ... our now.
After many years Ars Technica's Jeremy Reimer has published the eighth installment of his History of the Amiga series. Also well worth reading...
