Amiga Workbench v1.2 Startup/Boot screen Wallpaper

The "Insert the Workbench Disk" boot screen from the Commodore Amiga.

The “Insert the Workbench 1.2 Disk” boot up screen from the Commodore Amiga.

Like Kickstart, the initial versions of Workbench were a mess, with an extremely short development times and pushed-out-the-door on marketing’s schedule.  To their credit, however, Commodore was able to get out Workbench v1.2, and the Amiga became a much more stable fairly quickly.  You really only needed to keep copies of v1.0 or 1.1 around for the handful of the early Electronic Arts games that refused to work under v1.2+.

The downloadable ZIP file contains the famous “Hand with the Workbench Disk” screenshots in the original 320×480 format, as well as:  480×800 & 640×960 (great for smartphones), 1024×768 & 1280×800 (for iPad’s and tablets), 1440×900, 1600×1200, 720P and 1080P.
