Again, great article with tons of little insights into the history of the Amiga and Commodore in general.  As before it has left me anxiously waiting for the next part.  Very interesting information for any Amiga enthusiast. :-D

It is a good read but you can't beat a copy of 'On the edge' for the details. Fantastic book. Worth every penny.

@tonyyeb,

Yeah, I should probably buy that book some day to include with my vast Amiga collection, but I think it would be too depressing to read, as I already know how it ends.

I prefer to think of the possibilities of our future and developments like the Minimig and AClone (or is it CloneA, I have not been keeping up with this one).

Yeah I wanted to stop after chapter 22 - "The New Amiga's". I highly recommend it though.

Which is silly really considering they have the record for the most sold computer in the world and were a HUGE part of getting computers into the home.
