+1.   Amiga is a great machine, but, it didn't corner the market on great ideas, nor on fanatical, polarized loyalty.  ;)

Great video! It almost makes the Macintosh look as good as an Amiga computer!

Then you are the cheerleader of a computer running an amiga-like OS, not a mac like the hipsters know it... and this thread are from the last 30 years, this old macs compared to amiga are crap

You are not telling me anything I did not know when they were current.
When Macs were 68K based, my company was selling multi-user, multi-tasking 68K based hardware.
Like I said, great waste of a good processor.
Look how long the went without a CLI.

Yes, kudos to the Palo Alto Research Center and all they gave us.

Come on y'all. Apple and its Macintosh is part of the great '80s heritage shared with Commodore and the Amiga, and others of that era. We don't stand apart from Apple or Microsoft or IBM, we stand with them and in many ways because of them. I think its perfectly fine to wish a Happy 30th Birthday to the Macintosh.

Next year will be our turn, and y'all can post on Mac, and Atari, and other forums in the 'Other Operating Systems' category (or something to that effect); Happy 30th Birthday Amiga!!!

The Mac is never positioned as perfect. True, Apples marketing department can spin things with the best of them, but some facts do remain and Apple's Macintosh lineage of computers has given the personal computer market some of its firsts.

Commodore also gave the computer and digital entertainment industry some of its firsts:
First 32-bit games console with CD-ROM
First pre-emptive multitasking personal computer under $1,000 that can plug into a TV out of the box.

These "firsts" can always be spun this way or that, just keep adding caveats. As we have learned, and Apple has taught us this lesson more than most; just because it is "first" does not mean it's good, or successful. But is does put ideas in the minds of others to improve upon. If for nothing else, the Mac has been an arena where a lot of industry disruption played out, for better or worse. Like 'em, don't like 'em, it doesn't matter; It has been a platform that has simultaneously delighted and disappointed computer users consistently for 30 years, and that my friends is a feet worth recognising.

:crazy:

Oh god, we had one of those. Rattling deathtrap if you tried to go above 90mph, 1.0L engine (or was it a 1.1?), and then a decade of blowing up transmissions when they tried to put a bigger engine without also beefing up the tranny. I remember how excited my dad was to order it though, the brochures laying around the house, got it custom from the factory with a digital dashboard. Goodbye Ford Pinto station wagon that we had before that, hello woodgrain siding! :P
