ВВ Among them was Steve Jobs, who had been pestering Warhol to play with MacPaint, initially to a lukewarm response. "Jobs wanted Andy to use the Mac, but he didnt like it because at that time the Mac was only grayscale and Andy really liked color, of course," says Matt Wrbican, chief archivist at the Andy Warhol Museum.
Back then, the Commodore Amiga was where it was at. The personal computer was able to display more than 4,000 colors; in a demonstration from 1985, you see a Commodore exec showcasing all 4,096 simultaneously on screen to a crowds enthusiastic applause. "So when the people from Commodore approached [Warhol] and the saw what their computer could do, he was a lot more interested in using that," Wrbican says. "Plus they were willing to pay him a lot of money."
