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.

Jack Tramiel was a business man, period. Which makes him more more like either Jobs or Gates.


Yes, he led two of the companies which produced some of the computers some of us cherished in our kid years, but that is a far from being a technological "innovator."


Still, a sad day for his family. RIP.
