Recently finished watching AMC's Halt & Catch Fire TV series. It evoked fond memories from that time in my life and made me remember with a deep sense of nostalgia the Commodore Amiga.
Are there only two PC systems that left an enduring legacy in the World, "PCs" (IBM PC and clones or compatibles), and Macintosh?
Mac's are still considered "closed systems" right? but since all PC's use the same CPU (Intel), expansion (PCIe), How similar/interchangeable are their architecture today?
Makes me wonder, What would happen if Commodore didn't screw up and the Amiga became a real third contender? Will it standardize as well to become on more in the bunch? Or could it have brought more innovation to the game?
