You just can't keep a good computer down -- at least that's the feeling of the folks who recently relaunched Commodore. In May the company shipped pre-production versions of the Commodore 64. I honestly have no clue as to why it would bring back such a long defunct computer.
It also has the intellectual property rights to the Amiga, which it might work on bringing back if the hardware and software are thoroughly modernized. Here's the problem with that: The Amiga essentially died because it lacked mainstream software like Word and Lotus 1-2-3. A reborn Amiga will face the same challenge.
This is about the third time someone has tried to bring back the Amiga. Maybe this one is the charm?
The confusing part is that there's a different company called Amiga that sells Amiga products such as the Amiga operating system and tablet.
