    There was a brief period in the early 80's when the Atari 800 was
    outselling the Apple II, but Atari decided to push games rather than
    the then newly released Visicalc for Atari.

    Commodore went the other way - they tried to push the Amiga as a
    business computer and failed miserably (and in fact collapsed the
    company!), despite the fact that it was a very popular home / games
    computer.

    That Amiga was one slick computer. The funny thing was I undertstood
    the graphics and the scan list which controlled the display in real
    time.

    Commodore made great computers with the VIC20, C64 and Amiga, but the
    management of the company was dismally hopeless and simply had no clue
    what they were doing, especially towards the end.

    Now of course there some fools trying to resurrect the name Commodore
    for various devices that have nothing to do with computers :-( as well
    as a few hard-core fanatics that still use the Amiga OS, but now on
    PCs.
