But, did you know that the Dutch are responsible for a wide array of fabulous computers. Some massive, some small, but all, INCREDIBLY interesting. It's for that reason, Octav1us and I took a trip to the Home Computer Museum in Helmond (which is in the Netherlands), to see these wonderful creations and to learn how the Dutch do the Computering. Creations include the Compudata Sorcerer, Tulip Computers, the Dai Computer, the Tulip System one and the incredible Aesthedes 2: Good god, what a thing.

  • This strange computer was at Art Center College of Design in CA... we used in to create graphics and I worked on it and had a class creating graphics on it. It was extreme for the time... It was easy to use and very powerful for the time. Check out my work at ANC.com - I started on the AppleII all the way to now creating cool inventions in technology. I am amazed at what we have done and it all started on the Commodore Amiga years ago. Training started on this machine. Wow!

  • So I just went on google to look up what the price of that design computer would be today cuz I thought his estimate of 300 000 Gulden being worth 500 000 Euro was kind of low. turns out it was kind of high. apparantly 300 000 Gulden in 1980 would be worth 663.32 Gulden or 301.00 Euro in 2018 (latest figures I could find)

  • 1:02 Tulip 80286-12.5 Mhz. I'm looking at one of those here now. I still have the manuals, discs and advertising leaflet. Only 40 M.Byte hard Drive, 640 K.RAM (I expanded mine with a 512 K.RAM card). Iresolution type. The video card switches between Magda and flicker free CGA via a toggle switch on the back, requiring a monitor swap. Another video card can be run to allow 2 monitors of Magda & CGA simultaneously for some of the high end CAD & ECAD software available at the time. It was side lined when I bought a Compaq Deskpro 80386-16 Mhz. top range model, with 80387 maths co-processor, 4 M.RAM & 121 M.Byte IDE Hard Drive as my latest ECAD & circuit emulation software (Proteus) demanded this. The power supply blew a capacitor last year and I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet. I use it to run my Sinclair Spectrum & ZX81 emulator games.

  • Back in 1995, I took a tour of a super computer center in Southern California. Which was an extension of Pixar. And along with the multiple rooms of servers, they had a computer with a giant panel interface that looked similar to that Aesthedes panel. At the time, I was in 6th grade and wasn't taking in much besides "wow, big rooms and huge monitors!" So I can't confirm if the thing I saw was an actual Aesthedes machine. Maybe they told us, but I don't know. But the minute I saw this hulking machine, I was reminded of that machine I saw back then. They also showed us the famous dancing baby and lamp films. This was before Toy Story came out so most of us had no idea what Pixar was.

I had the money, but for a school kid trying to get around the government paperwork to spend money overseas, ... I gave up and a couple of years later when computers could be bought from a store here I bought a System 80 Mk II. www.classic-computers.org.nz/system-80/hardware_s80.htm. My high school had two computers, I had one.

  • Went on a two week training course in Hilversum back in about 1988/89 to learn the Aesthedes 2 whilst we waited for delivery. It was a far over engineered machine and ultimately flawed and not capable of matching the up and coming Apple Mac systems. After a lengthy court battle at the royal courts of justice we were awarded damages due to CDS not being able to deliver a stable platform for work. And it cost an arm and a leg too.

  • I suspect one factor for Exidy's computer not doing well here in the US might have been because they were previously under fire for their 1976 Death Race arcade game being deemed immoral and violent. They probably also didn't have the advertising reach or budget that Commodore, TI, or Apple had either. But the funniest thing about that is it was only a few years later that they made Chiller which makes Death Race look like some quaint little programming exercise by a bedroom coder.

A friend owned a Tandy TRS-80, my dad had a LASER XT machine, with an orange monochrome "hercules" display. Later on I bought my first own PC, a LASER AT (80286 processor) with a VGA graphics card and a 256 color monitor, of which I was very proud then as my friends only had 16 colors... Me and my friends were running DR-DOS at the time, and there was a bit of competition going on to tweak the config.sys to free up as much RAM as possible (from the available 1 MB there was in the machine)...
