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.

I have a Atari 600XL and a 800XL with boatloads of hardware add-ons, Also an Amiga A1200 with 030 accelerator/expansions and such. I still use all of them even now and they all work flawlessly like they did when they left the factory. They knew how to make em back then!
This is is sad news indeed. RIP Jack, may you find the golden keyboard of eternity.
