Amiga: 25 Years Later

Twenty-five years ago on July 23, a new personal computer was unveiled at a black-tie, celebrity-studded gala at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in New York's Lincoln Center. It debuted to rave reviews and great expectations -- heck, InfoWorld said it might be the "third milestone" in personal computing after the Apple II and the IBM PC.

The computer was Commodore's Amiga. In an era in which the most common form of microcomputer was an IBM PC-compatible system with a text-only display and a tinny internal speaker, the Amiga had dazzling color graphics and stereo sound. Its Intuition user interface looked like the Mac, but offered an advanced feature known as "multitasking." The machine was a stunner, especially given that it came from a company previously known for rinkydink home computers such as the VIC-20 and Commodore 64.

Modern cartoons all have crappy graphics and Animation...
Mouth open, mouth closed, mouth open, mouth closed, no other movement, lazy animators...
Compare that to any of the Disney or WB animations of the 40's, 50's, 60's and tell me who is being conned...
Poor modern kids dunno what theys missing
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
