Amiga Galaxies: Classic Amiga, the source galaxy
Every innovation has a beginning, a source. So it is with the AmiVerse.
What began as Amiga and is now Classic Amiga is that beginning, that
It was fun to work for a startup computer company in the 1970's and 1980's.
Commodore, Atari, Coleco (later named Sega), Sinclair, and many others took
the plunge. People stayed up all night (and sometimes for days at a time)
to "win" the race to introduce before some other company did.
The original Amiga team and its history is detailed elsewhere. The
importance for the AmiVerse is that this team produced a concept so
singular that it is still news today. Much of the old equipment still runs
and performs tasks at a useable level today. And the concept, the "spirit"
of Amiga, lives on.
We owe much as a continuing community to this source galaxy, the first of
its kind. We refer to this as the source, the "way it should be" for
continuing development. As we expand, extend and re-imagine Amiga, the
source "galaxy" is always in view.
And at AmiWest 2013, we will have much in support of the Amiga Classic
(source galaxy) platform. Be sure to see our previous blog post on that
topic. Come to AmiWest 2013 to start your glactic tour with the source,
