Jack Tramiel 1928 – 2012
“Computers for the masses, not the classes”
Words cannot describe the feeling I had when I read the report on Forbes that Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore and one of the most important people in computer history died last Sunday, aged 83.
My thoughts are now with his family who are going through this tough period.
Jack, you will be missed… you were the inspiration for generations upon generations of computer scientists, engineers, and gamers who had their first exposure to high technology because of your affordable computers.
Thank you Jack, for the incredible contribution you’ve made to computing history… thank you for allowing me to experience computers and the wonders that lay ahead… thank you for bringing the miracle of computers to everyone’s home…
