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.

So he followed a business model of low margin/high volume. That proves my point that he was a business man.

The "innovators" are the guys working on the design of the machines, not the one making bank off them.
