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. Read about the history of the Commodore Amiga at Low End Mac.

hey, CLI is still cool (just check in with any *nix power user, some of them going mac because of osx's bsd core and a *sh CLI out of the box). and amiga had a very nice CLI compared to the likes of MS-DOS. and as it had a GUI and a multitasking os below, one could run multiple CLI's at the same time ;)

heh, i have seen more then one *nix user that use the X windowing system for one thing only, to run multiple CLI's on screen at the same time ;)

basicly the amiga os was what microsoft maybe got right around the time the release windows 2000.
