Heeeeerrrrrreeeeee's Petro Petro Taras Tyschtschenko
Born in 1943. Petro was first regarded with some suspicion when he first took over at Amiga Technologies. Since then he has managed to keep the platform alive, even during the Escom liquidation. He is more of a salesman than technology-orienated but supports the Amiga without the personal politics that have plagued other Amiga employees. Petro retired in 2001.
