Today's video is quite a special one - one that's been requested for a long time...we're looking at the history of the almighty Commodore Amiga - how it came to be, how it flourished, and how arguably the best and most advanced computer of the 80's was mismanaged and manhandled into never quite becoming the computer it should have been. British folk may not be aware of the chaos that reigned behind the scenes in America, and Americans may not be aware of the success the computer had in Europe that arguably kept it - and Commodore - alive.
This video is split into three parts: Part 1 covers the story of how the Amiga almost became the Atari ST, and the subsequent war between the two computers that followed. Part 2 covers the computer's mismanagement by Commodore and all that led to the fall of the company. Part 3 covers the long time that Amiga Inc. has spent in the wilderness, still existing but thrown around all over the place by people who simply couldn't make good on their promises.
It's a bumper video, to be sure - just remember that only Amiga makes it possible. Enjoy!
This video would not be possible without the existence of Dave Haynie's legendary documentary, Deathbed Vigil - a 2 hour document of the fall of Commodore, made by those who were right there in the heart of it. You can watch this classic right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaTjw...
