I've never heard of the Mindset PC, but the Amiga story is very nicely told
at The Amiga Interactive Guide, at . Follow the
Features link, and see "Amiga History" and "The Amiga Corporation 1982-84".
Although a team of designers was involved, the person generally credited as
"the father of the Amiga" is the late Jay Miner, who came from Atari Corp.
