    This may be of interest to those who, like me, came to Apple by way of Commodore or are keen on studying a once-giant player in the computer industry.

    Brian Bagnall's Commodore: A Company on the Edge is the definitive account of the company's history until Jack Tramiel's departure. Bagnall has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his next book, Commodore: The Amiga Years, which will examine the period up to CBM's bankruptcy.

    The Amiga is the machine that Apple's Jean-Louis Gassee is quoted as saying once made everyone at Apple "scared as hell".

    Great machine that wasted many years of my life. Lemmings and syndicate were my main two titles closely followed by worms!
