| "Viva Amiga" is inspired
Zachary Weddington's "Viva Amiga" is an exceptional documentary about the Amiga computer. Although it's heyday was in the 1980's, there are fans even today that are still modifying the software and running these revolutionary devices.

Spanning the globe to find those who worked on the original product, their passion, and rightfully so, their disappointment is revealed. When scales of economy ruled the day at Apple and Microsoft, this device, similar to the Commodore 64, tried its level best to enter a general market that just wasn't ready for it. Don't tell that to the legions of global fans who, much like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, were toying with their Amiga computers in their garages.

"Viva Amiga" is as much about the people who worked on the product as much as it is of the fans. Weddington's passion is on full display.

I cannot recommend "Viva Amiga" enough.
