Just thought somebody might find this interesting.
Oh Commodore, you were SO awesome.
I still have my trusty Amiga 600 somewhere, and I've also got an expanded Amiga 1200 right here on my desk. They're amazing machines, and they were ahead YEARS before their competition, technically speaking.
Too bad Commodore's management sucked, and they just were a bunch of greedy people who wasted all the C='s money in stupid projects and huge big-wig wages.
If they had better people back then, nowadays we could have a nice Amiga 9000 as the Windows competitor, instead of Apple... Oh well.
Nice. I did find this interesting.
Damn, that's cool.
Thanks for the link Rydian!
Along the same veins, even though I wasn't even alive when this hardware was first introduced, this still continues to amaze me every time I watch it: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5...51342753379583#
Amazing. I love how the coders had to hit the hardware in any way possible to achieve something like that. Nowadays coders are just lazy, with all this calculating power we've got!
And the fact that they had to use text mode to even get that far! Craziness. Original webpage for the 8088 Corruption thing is at http://www.oldskool.org/pc/8088_Corruption
I actually emulated the thing with DOSbox (had to change the config file to use CGA instead of VGA) and was WAY more excited than I should have been when it worked. Lulz.
