| 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)
