Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and former CEO of Atari International, died on Sunday at the age of 83. He was surrounded by family at the time of his passing, according to Forbes.
Famous for saying that computers should be built “for masses, not the classes,” Tramiel played an important role in the early days of personal computing and video gaming, as his company introduced a line of powerful but affordable home computers, including the popular Commodore 64.
I was honestly not familiar with Tramiel by name at all until reading this, but the Commodore 64 was a legendary computer. My older brother even had one, although I was only a few years old at the time so I sadly don’t remember a thing about it.
