Philosophy: The Amiga as "a computer built to last 50 years"
In early 2021, engineer, writer and lecturer at the École Polytechnique de Louvain, Lionel Dricot, wrote an essay titled 'The computer built to last 50 years' in which he ponders how a long-lasting computer could be developed to save both one's finances, but also resources, and thus the planet.

Carl Svensson, well-known our readers by his ARexx-Tools 'RxEnv', Carl Svensson has now written a rebuttal: 'The Amiga as "a computer built to last 50 years"'. In it, he claims that the '50-year-old computer' already exists - in various forms and designs - and that we just need to find it in attics and restore it: the Amiga.

A computer that has been in use for around 30 years would literally stand for sustainability. Its longevity makes up for what it lacks in energy efficiency. (dr)
