@elwood

The first comment is really funny... an idiot at its most powerful trolling (quote: "...If they'd had even one Linus Torvalds in the company...")

its funny how people forget after some time.

When Amiga came in 1985 it was the most advanced computer of its time, and all of a sudden people start saying no it wasnt and so on (theese days)...

sure it was meant for same things as MAC and PC and C64 etc ... (and amiga beated em in every aspect)

Is this a news item? It'll also only make foreigners coming here think that we're so desperate about news that make this one.

There are a few very interesting (and sentimental) posts in that SlashDot thread. If you have the time to sort through it, it's actually overall worth a read.

Not all of it, a _few_ of the comments are pretty accurate, with a few _long_ comments/histories corrected 'all the usual BS' on /.
