I just think it's strange that two teams are actually behind the vast majority of 8 bit and 16 bit computers that were ever built. And how success was apparently tied to the manufacturer's name.

The 8 bit Ataris had a great chipset for their time with many neat capabilities, yet the simpler and slower C64 was built and sold in far greater numbers. Later, the Amiga was built by Commodore and was a huge success - because of the great chipset from the same team that once designed the 8 bit Ataris. At the same time the Atari ST was designed by the guys who previously designed the C64, but this time the more spartan design did not win.
