25 Jahre Amiga

Wenn die Computer, die einen in der Jugend begleitet haben, immer größere, runde Geburtstage feiern, merkt man, wie man erst, wie alt man selber ist/wird.


Youtube: Animated Amiga Tribute by Eric Schwartz

(Schwartz is a noted fan of the Amiga operating system, and made several well-known animations with it.)

 

Anatol Locker (ehemalige PowerPlay Leser wissen, wer das ist) hat einen schönen „Nachruf” geschrieben:
Eine Generation verschwendete lustvoll Stunden vor „Die Siedler”, „Sensible Soccer” „Turrican 2”, „SDI” oder „Defender of the Crown”. Wer tiefer in die Tasche griff, bekam mit dem Amiga 2000 einen Grafikcomputer. Titelsequenzen und Special-Effects von Serien wie „Seaquest DSV” und „Babylon 5” wurden auf Amiga gerendert. Sogar in „Miami Vice” wurde er gesichtet.

Johannes Grenzfurthner today posted on Twitter „How a patent for XOR ended Commore Amiga in 1994”:
Apparently Commodore-Amiga owed $10M for patent infringement. Because of that, the US government wouldn’t allow any CD-32’s into the USA. And because of that, the Phillipines factory seized all of the CD-32’s that had been manufactured to cover unpaid expenses. And that was the end.

 

I still own my my Amiga 500 and cherish it. It was, no IS, a very special machine.
