    Sad news for all Commodore fans and Commodore-adjacents, of which I was the latter.

    Should be getting as much in terms of coverage and plaudits as a certain other person.. Jack did a lot for the industry, creating "computers for the masses, not the classes"

    A nice little writeup by Bob Cringely...

    What I learned this week that I didn’t know before was that the people who worked for Tramiel really loved him. Jack Tramiel was no Steve Jobs: he was better.
