I just stumbled across this:

http://pediapress.com/books/show/early-home-computers-by-wikipedians/

I didn't know Wikipedians got together to publish books! Cool concept and it looks like quite a faithful pooling of knowledge about the subject and the Amiga/ST sections are interesting It even mentions the old Cyber Studio CAD-3D 2 program and gives some background to its development on the ST!

@Thread

Why hasn't the Amiga wikipedia page been updated with news of the X5000 launch?

Also, surely the last 'desktop' computer mad by Commodore was the A4000T? Unless you think it doesn't fit on or isn't capable of being held up by a desk

@BigD

Yeah, someone should create a Wikipedia page for the X5000, instead of being a footnote on the X1000's entry.

@daveyw and BigD

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.


Coverage of the X5000 is in the main AmigaOne article. Feel free to start a new article for the X5000, I think we have enough RS to keep it.

They didn't. Apparently, someone clever just collected several dozen Wikipedia articles and published them in book form.
