Amiga & AROS The Amiga changed the computer industry. It was based on a multitasking operating system, rivaled the graphics power of some workstations and was affordable enough for home users. Unfortunately, Commodore struggled to maintain Amiga's lead, and through a number of bizarre business decisions (refusing to license the Amiga design to Sun), went bankrupt.

DOS was "new"

I remember when people started to "build" their computers from components manufactured in Taiwan, and run DOS on them.
It was considered cool using a CLI, rather the multitasking and GUI from Amiga OS.
Today it seems really stupid, but those were the times... And we all had to wait for the industry to catch up, what a waste of years.
