Jack Tramiel passed away this weekend, aged 83. His name is associated with two great names in 1980s home computing; Commodore and Atari. Mr Tramiel was a Polish Auschwitz survivor. After rescue from the concentration camp he emigrated to the USA where he learned to repair office equipment including typewriters.

For me Tramiel was an idol long before Gates, Allen, Torvalds, Jobs etc. Rest in peace, thank you for an incredible amount of excellent memories.
