Wow you know your stuff Thorham...Well regardless of what the first real multi tasking computer was I think we can all pretty much agree that the Amiga was the first "successful" multi tasking computer, this reminds me of another argument, who invented the world's first working computer, coming first doesn't always seem to guarantee recognition, but I digress.
One thing that always struck me as odd was why there hasn't been any real in depth documentaries about the Amiga, whenever there's a program on tv about computers it's usually geared towards Apple or Microsoft, Commodore is lucky to even get a mention in passing.
