Unhappy RIP Jack Tramiel - 04-10-2012, 15:14 | posts: 11,513 | Location: UK

As title, aged 83, condolences to all family and friends.

One of the major pioneers in the PC industry, Jack Tramiel who was perhaps best known for being the founder of Commodore has died at 83 years of age on Sunday. Jack's history prior to and beyond Commodore's inception is quite an inspiring one. He was born in Poland in 1928 to a Jewish family and survived the Auschwitz concentration camp after which he then immigrated to the U.S. in 1947.

I had a Commodore 64, then i got the Amiga 500, followed by the 1200, them were the days.
