      Amiga Lorraine: finally, the "next generation Atari"?
      Author: John J. Anderson   Date Verified:
      CREATIVE COMPUTING VOL. 10, NO. 4 / APRIL 1984 / PAGE 150. As the 1984 Winter CES drew to a close, people began to ask me, "Well, what was the hit of the show?" Hard to say. Overall, the show was short on blockbusters, at least in the realm of microcomputers. Commodore introducedd its new machine, the 264 (see the related sidebar and "Commodore's Port" for more information on this development). Atari and Apple were playing their cards close to the vest, and had little to report this time around. New software was in abundance, but with the possible exception of Relax from Synapse (about which you will read more in an upcoming issue), nothing really knocked me off my feet.

      Amiga The Online Israel User-Group Network
      Author: n/a   Date Verified: 2015-02-01
      << Archived Link >> Welcome to our user group web site. Our Amiga user group (Full name: Amiga Online Israel User-Group Network) is the only one of its kind in Israel. Though the numbers of Amiga computers in Israel is pretty small (due to bad marketing on the account of Commodore Computer and its importers and marketers in Israel) we believe that with the introduction of the Amiga OS 4.0 and 5.0, and with our help in spreading the news and persuasion, the Amiga could really become a hit in Israel like it was in Europe. Good source for history and information.

      Author: n/a   Date Verified:
      1982-1984. Founded in 1982, Amiga Corporation is best known for the Amiga Computer that it developed for Commodore Business Machines. Before creating the groundbreaking graphics powerhouse, however, Amiga was an innovator in the field of both Atari 2600 hardware and software. A link off the Atari 2600 developer pages.

      Author: Peter Smets   Date Verified:
      About Us.. This site mostly is a one-man project so let me introduce myself. I'm FRaNKy and I live in Belgium not far from Brussels in a town called Asse. Since 1982 I've been using C64's after my dad got one for using MultiPlan and I played my games on it. When dad got his PC (a Schneider XT) the C64 was mine and quite fast I was playing around in Basic but mostly still playing games. Then I got my A500 and many Amiga's followed, the C64 was pushed to the back and honestly I didn't do much on it anymore. After starting out as a mailswapper in the Amiga scene I quitted that after being leader of (Crux &) Bad Karma and running my BBS Doxology. Not losing contact with the scene I decided to re-enter it on my first love - the C64 - at the Mekka & Symposium Party 2000 when I joined Role. Since then I've been active as an editor for the diskmags Rock'N'Role and Arachnophobia (published together with Spiders Crew) and doing some graphics work.

      Commodore History
      Author: Gary Oberbrunner   Date Verified:
      The original posting of this came from Gary Oberbrunner. This was re-posted by Na Choon Piaw in 1989 and recently (Aug '98) re-posted again by Bjørnar Bolsøy. On Monday March 2, RJ Mical (=RJ=) spoke at the Boston Computer Society meeting in Cambridge. Fortunately I was momentarily possessed with an organizational passion, and I took copious notes. I present them here filtered only through my memory and my Ann Arbor. My comments are in [square brackets]. What follows is a neutron-star-condensed version of about three and one half hours of completely uninterrupted discussion.

      Welcome to Convergence International, the user group for non-Wintel platforms. Convergence International\'s mission is to promote and provide information on alternative non-Wintel computer platforms, allowing people to make an informed choice about what hardware and operating system is best suited to their requirements. We believe that if a time comes when one single platform is the only one in use the computer industry will suffer. Without competition there is stagnation, and no one platform can hope to be best suited to every application. While there are alternatives development is spurred on by competition, and people are free to choose the platform which best suits their needs.

      What is a Commodore Computer?
      Author: Reid C. Swenson   Date Verified:
      A Look at the Incredible History and Legacy of the Commodore Home Computers. There are many individuals who have probably never heard of the Commodore home computers and are unaware of their incredible legacy and the tremendous impact which they have had upon the evolution of computers. Some of the younger generation who are too young to remember the 1980's may still not have seen or heard much-- if anything-- about Commodore computers and likely have very little sense of their significance. (GREAT!!!!))
