I'm sorry to hear about this. I got my start with computers with the Commodore 64, and it's strongly influenced the direction of my life ever since.

Farewell, Jack Tramiel...

The c64 was the first computer i ever played games on.It introduced me to games.The amiga 500 which i got in 1990 is still working.R.I.P Jacky boy.

Tick tock, ever gently killing silence, ticks the clock. Tick tock where the fuck is the icp2?

 

Currently working on Spirit-shard and Labyrinth of Crystalia for Pandora and other systems.

Wow, R.I.P.
I've been trying to get a C64 on eBay the past couple of weeks, I bet it's gonna get a little harder now.
Too bad this isn't going to get as much attention as Steve Jobs, this guy is a legend.

He carried the popular-face-of-home-computing Torch after 'Uncle' Clive Sinclair left the stage. I think he was one of the most frequently seen faces in computer magazines, gaming & 'serious' for many years.
