Good article! It makes you think a bit deeper into it. When I was younger and got my first Amiga, I presumed they just, you know, thought of it and built it.

Only when I was a bit older I realised they had tons of prototypes, failed machines, political and financial issues.

In fact it's amazing the the Amiga ever came to fruition at all!

Plus the fact Jay Miner (RIP) looks like Cap'n Birds Eye

Or Bob Fleming, for those UK EABers who saw 'The Fast Show'

A series of interesting article which for once presents us the facts such as they were in the time without falling in the classic : Amiga was better without explaining further
