It was launched with a demo by Andy Warhol and great expectations. But it never became a blockbuster and Commodore died in 1994. Still, the platform was amazing and influential, and it's never officially died. (The Amiga's current owner plans to release a new model later this year.) I was an Amiga fanatic in the 80s and early 90s, and took the anniversary as an opportunity to look back at its life and legacy.
