Amiga development system from 1984

I found this gallery in my bookmarks, it has pictures of one of the first Amiga development systems from 1984. It's a cross-development system where the developer would do the work on another M68K-based computer, the Sage IV, and transfer the finished programs over to the makeshift Amiga.

I never heard of Sage Computer so I did some research and found this story.
Similar to Amigas story.

That is a pretty awesome find, Its a bummer Tripos for the SAGE isn't archived :-(

For those interested, SIMH actually includes a emulator for the SAGE.

whats interesting is that the installation document tells it runs on IDRIS which is a UNIX v6-like.

It'd be fascinating to get images of those disks to see what the dev environment from that time was.

Anyone know the person who owns that and if they can archive it?

I like the writing on the floppy dated December 1984 'Copyright Commodore Amiga Inc 1984' must be one of the earliest photos of the name written down? What with Commodore only buying the Amiga in August that year.

Maybe Dale Luck as he own a lot of Amiga and Amiga prototypes.
