    Without reading that link i think this man was the Brains behind the 16bit computer the Atari ST and Warner group or was it his son Sam,i cant remember.

    R.I.P. to one of the most important developers in the Revolution of gaming be it Hardware and Software..hence the Atari 2600 which spawned many many imitators,none which surpassed the original.

    The Tramiel family played a massive role in developing the industry to what it is today,definitely one of the industrys key players regarding the blueprinted testing ground for what we have today.

    Respect and R.I.P.
