The Commodore Amiga (spanish: girlfriend) was a widespread computer from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, which was particularly popular as a home computer in its entry-level models (A500 and A1200). For his time, he had strong multimedia skills and a powerful, preemptive multitasking operating system. During the Commodore period, he worked consistently with processors of the Motorola 68000 family.

“The Amiga was so far ahead of its time that almost nobody—including Commodore's marketing department—could fully articulate what it was all about. Today, it's obvious the Amiga was the first multimedia computer, but in those days it was derided as a game machine because few people grasped the importance of advanced graphics, sound, and video. Nine years later, vendors are still struggling to make systems that work like 1985 Amigas.”
