Workbench® Nostalgia

updated: September 15, 2014 Addendum AmigaOS Version Table Unsolved Workbench Mysteries

Introduction

These pages are dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the interesting and valuable history of the Amiga Graphical User Interface known as "Workbench."

Please note that although I am still maintaining this site, I no longer own an Amiga nor any Workbench disks, software, or ROM files of any kind. If you are looking for emulation software, Amiga Forever is the award-winning Amiga preservation, emulation and support package brought to you by Cloanto, Amiga developers since 1986. All editions of Amiga Forever include everything you need to legally emulate the Amiga (ROMs, Operating Systems, games, applications, and demoscene productions) with a single-click. The Premium Edition also includes two DVDs with historical videos from the Commodore days.

If you are looking for replacement Workbench disks or other Amiga hardware/software, the best places to look are: AmiBay, amigakit.com, eBay or Software Hut. You can also try asking on UseNet's comp.sys.amiga.misc and comp.sys.amiga.hardware newsgroups. Bear in mind that original Amiga hardware is very old, and susceptible to malfunction or failure even if it was never used.
