Ars Technica has released another excellent article in their series on the Amiga [https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/11/a-history-of-the-amiga-part-11-between-an-escom-and-a-gateway/]. This article covers the beginning of the post-Commodore world, starting with Escom and ending with the beginning of Amiga Inc.
