Interesting interview, but I think it's time for him to obtain an Amiga.

Wonderful interview! It is amazing that they had the ambition to create games during that time with the war going on. Cool stuff indeed.

Wow! Rabah should write a book about his life. Then someone should turn this book into a movie.

The Rabah Shihab Story. What do you think?

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Really nice interview, Amiga really was worldwide!

"(now a brain surgeon)....."
"I lost contact with Mahir few years ago but I recently found him on Facebook, he recently moved to the States."

Cool... We need him to do some brain surgeon on Bill McEwen, who's starting the bounty

Ironic that no one from Canada knew about Rabah Shihab until he was interviewed by a French Amiga website!
