Hardware, Embedded Systems Very sad news indeed. Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and the man behind Atari, has passed away this past weekend. At 83, he passed away, surrounded by family and friends. People like this don't come in dozens, so we lost one of the great men of computing.

Don't even get me started on how great I loved and respected the Commodore computer line! I cut my teeth in middle school on a Commodore 64. After that, I upgraded to a Commodore 128D in High school. In college, I had a Commodore 500+ and a Commodore 2000 before Commodore went bust in the early 90s. To this day, I contend that Commodore's computing technology was superior in every way shape and form to anything available at that time from Wintel or Apple. Jack Tramiel was truly a visionary and I am saddened by his loss.
