OBIT: Jack Tramiel - Founder of Commodore - makers of the PET and C64

Just noticed that Jack Tramiel, an Auschwitz survivor, and founder of Commodore died on Easter Sunday.

Commodore's computers were some of the first in the market - 5 years before the IBM PC, and before the first Apples. The Commodore PET was the first computer I ever touched.

Commodore's C64 computer is known as THE fastest selling personal computer of all time.

Best engineers leave us.

Just the other day I was thinking of a well known National super analog eng
who died too soon by driving into a tree and build his famous cold toe
circuit sketch.
