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.

He valued what privacy he could get. He was perfectly comfortable with the world knowing less about him than about Jobs and Gates.


That's because the true innovators were all quiet types that loved to tinker. Generally socially awkward as well.

Jobs and Gates weren't really the innovators that people like Wozniak, Jay Miner were (well are in Woz's case). They were all about the money. Cha-Ching!
