Today is International Amiga day, the date is dedicated to Jay Miner’s birthday; father of the Amiga. The Commodore Amiga is a legendary series of home and business computers that had its origins in the fertile minds of some very inventive and creative people who got mixed up in the computer wars between Atari and Commodore back in the early 1980s. The first of the line Amiga A1000 was years ahead of its time and was an important milestone and pointer to the future of computing. The Amiga remains one of the most popular hobbyist and creative computer systems ever, and is still beloved of thousands of retro-computing enthusiasts and hobbyists, occupying a proud place in the history of computing. We will enjoy its legacy today in many ways and years to come!
