LC color:

The LC could do thousands of colors with an SIMM upgrade to its VRAM circuitry. Like machines costing thousands of dollars more!

One could add a card to the SE/30 to run an external color monitor.

I owned an SE/30 and worked with an LC. Aside from the Performa line I had never experienced such an underperforming piece of crap.

No idea if it's a good book, but the background color rgb(235,90,79) of the [book's site](http://furbo.org/color/) hurts my eyes.

ResEdit is the ultimate programming tool! These Xcode newbies don't know what they're missing!

Color management on Amiga in 1991

The demoscene is where you weren't, JG. Collective work. Anarchy. No obsession with money. Awesome typographic exploration. Programming pushing the envelope.

John makes this entire advertisement about himself.

Dude is a narcissist to the nth degree.

Wonder how much Craig Hockenberry paid Gruber for this ad.

Since he's such a long time friend I bet he got a reduced rate.

The Amiga was way better than the Mac. Never got any traction in business though, and didn't coast on the desktop publishing wave. Even the Atari ST was superior. Alas, all ancient history now... (Also, while on a whinge, there was a few desktop apps back in the 68000 days that have not been equaled in ease-of-use and speed - thinking especially of WriteNow. It's not all a one-way trip to a better tomorrow...)

My first Mac was an SE/30 and then I had a IIc. The LC was a bit of a dog, but it looked nice.

Well, I think it was superior for some specific uses, but not as a general purpose computing machine. Same with the Atari 800. And I say that as great aficionado of the Amiga.

Try handing an Amiga to a family member or random person on the street and see if they could get anything done with it without a lot of training and hand-hiding. It would not go well. With the Mac, that was at least possible.

The Amiga was superior for video title production, but I was never sure why.

obviously we need to make fun of Gruber for saying that a 91-page e-book (marginal cost: $0) “costs only $8”

But it's lovingly hand-crafted on artisnal pixels.
