Amiga & AROS When it first arrived, the Amiga was a dream machine, and some have said it was ten years ahead of its time. The first installment of this multipart history of the Amiga looks at the events that led up to the birth of the company and the PC that bore its name.

I think it's a real shame that the Amiga never took of as an office computer in the 80's and early 90's. It was marketed as a gaming machine, but it had an operating system that was _way_ more advanced that MS-DOS and even early Windows versions.

My first computer was an Amiga and it taught me to use the command line in conjunction with with a GUI. I never felt at home with Windows, but Linux and and OS X is just like the good old Amiga days. ;)
