Operating System Used:

Programming was something most 80s kids had - if they owned a home computer at least. It was the default landing space when you turned on your machine, and so learning it was almost mandatory, and obviously pretty exciting.

Watch the Video I know it's an outrageous notion to pose. A spill chilling, shudder inducing one. But if Amiga didn't exist, what could have happened?

The Amiga CD32...What a console.... what a machine. Those I'm sure were the exact phrases that went through my mind when I first glimpsed this beast of a machine back in the early to mid 90's.
