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.

the MS/Gates flood of unexciting blandness... "


@Thom please correct phrase: "...man behind Atari..." - somebody could ask himself: "and where is Nolan Bushnell?" Jack T. was man behind Atari Corp. from 1984.; and until then, he tried to "destroy" very same Atari ;) (take a look at interview: Commodore 64 - 25th Anniversary Celebration)
