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.

That book was so depressing. All the leverage Commodore had and then Gould & Ali killed it with moronic decisions. Sad. The industry benefited from the competition.

Now 95% of all computers are PC/Windows and the only thing happening between major windows upgrades is that the gayness level increases by 30%.
