Of all the computers I've owned in my life, none were more exhilarating and exciting as the Commodore Amiga 500. Sure, the short time with the Vic-20 and then the long tenure with the Commodore 64 were very forming of my being, but the sheer innovation and wow-factor of the Amiga were legendary!

Ars Technica has a great blast from the past with their new article on the Amiga 500.

The Amiga just turned 30 years old this week. It's amazing how time flies. I can still remembering playing all those awesome Psygnosis games in my basement!

Give it a read, you'll really enjoy it if you are or were an Amiga fan or even if you want a little history lesson.
