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

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.
