Want to see "Omnigraffe" in 1985? ;)
 
I am watching the "computer chronicles" from archive.org and browsing Mac/Amiga related things.

Fast forward to 7:18 on the embedded video in

As a foreigner I never followed Mac scene back at those times but I keep getting amazed asking the simple question: How could people choose MS-DOS over Mac and Amiga?

BTW watch other episodes if you can, there is a treasure there for computer history.

Cool video! Thanks.

A lot of people picked DOS machines because they were heavily used in business.

Amigas didn't sell well. If I can recall correctly, they were also better machines than DOS-based PCs.

The personal computer market completely different back then. So was the early automobile market, etc.

I enjoyed that. It's amazing how much things have changed.

I'm just glad the fashions have changed since then. That and the fact the Mac is still around (and doing very well).

It was interesting to see how the old concepts developed into what we have today.
