OSNews, Generic OSes When new operating systems gets designed today, great systems such as Amiga, Atari and VMS, seems to get overlooked in regard to their original features not found on other OSes. It might be time to collect and categorize those special unique features under the great/lost ideas wiki, so new OSes don't have to re-invent the wheel and re-innovate.

Sorry, while it's true that Commodore underfunded & mismanaged Amiga, it was not all downhill from their purchase. For all the problems incurred by the clowns at the top, Commodore engineering made some brilliant moves with Amiga, not the least of which were the datatypes libraries.
