Well i chose engineering as that's what i'm qualified for

I suppose i could do quality control too as i'm a bit of a perfectionist! (you will never see capacitors soldered in the wrong way around with me on the job )

CEO for me...
...even if I made a complete and utter horlicks of it C= would still have been in better shape under my command.

Hey, rather than the famous 'Jack attacks' there could have been 'Charlie Mouse attacks' possibly involving me showing off my marvellous mechanical mouse organ...

I would have voted for "Senior Executive Post", but I didn't notice it (I just skimmed through the list looking for "CEO") and ended up picking Marketing instead.

But, really, even a kid like me with no experience to speak of would have done a better job at either. The Amiga would have actually been marketed in the US, and the Ranger/AAA/Hombre Amigas would have been put into production.

Hah, great post Paul.

I figured what they failed to do was to go from "Business is war" to a real #$^& war!

So I figured I'd put up the glorious flag of the Commodore Party, wipe out the enemy (I hope torturing spies is part of the job description!), and some good old fashioned propaganda to wash the brains remains of the huddled masses that fail to realize the SIGNIFICANCE of our beliefs.

I would never want to be Senior Exec, cos let's face it, who could ever replace the God-like greatness of our glorious Leader, Mr. Wotsits. For you see, I am humbled by the mere thought of his awesomeness.

i would of made Commodore sign up developers/publishers to make exclusives, also as their market was more like a console market than the PC market (ie single hardware producer) like Apple today (Apple have successfully gone for specialist market and made their computer look and feel better than your average PC)

publisher licensing fees may of been used to further fund research and developed rather than replying on just computer sales... even to point of releasing hardware addons

switching to a tower format might have also helped, the ability to add hardware
