    Happy birthday Amiga!!

    To celebrate this occassion, I'm going to do a short poem about Amiga on the spot:


    When the Amiga first saw the light of day
    the computer-worlds worries drained away

    We said hi to the boingball and 8-bit sound
    and to the games we played round after round

    With an OS like Workbench we were on the top
    Microsoft's DOS could just drop dead and rot

    The era of multi-tasking hit us like a beam
    we couldn't believe, was it all a dream?

    The Amiga had come to the world to stay
    with it's power and soul, it will never go away

    Communities was formed, and here we are today
    at Classicamiga we say HAPPY birthday!!


    by PG - 24-07-2007

    Ok, that was it. Hope you all enjoyed it.

    Very nice PG

    And happy birthday to the Amiga.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Wow ... I can't believe it's been 22 years already. Time sure passes quickly.

    Anyway, happy birthday to our favourite computer platform!
