Articles about the Commodore Amiga line of computers, both (historic) information about this line of computers as well as articles on both legacy and new hardware as well as software and games, old and new. We will be looking at the AmigaOS, AmigaDOS, Workbench, ARexx and the CLI (Command Line Interface). 

The above may be divided into sub categories, so check those, if you can not find what you are looking for. 

There may also be introductions and information pages related to my YouTube videos on these thems.


My Amiga projects

Productivity 2.1

This project will explore how to build a Productivity setup on a standard Amiga 500, using the built-in floppy drive and if possible a 2nd, external floppy drive.

The Productivity 2.1 project is based upon Kickstart 2.04/2.05 and Workbench 2.1
