Anyway read about it all yourself, it's quite the story. Wikipedia has a general description of what went on at the time, there is more accurate citations out there but it gives the general idea.

I EDITE THAT WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE because not so long ago it also stated that Jack Tramiel gave $500.000 to Amiga team!

That asshole, Kim Justice, base his entire 30 minutes crap video (story) around how Jack wanted Amiga chips WHICH IS complete nonsense!


EDIT:
I did not edit "Amiga_Corporation" (thanks for bring my attention) article on wikipedia but these two:
