Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

WinUAE is most likely the best Amiga there ever will be, sad but true. Compared to all the modern wannabes atleast it can run the old software ..

Regarding C64 and Amiga vs everything else I think three reasons people liked them where:
1) Simple as consoles
2) Price
3) No need to upgrade or worry about specs because everyone else had the same machine.

The Wii got more or less 10 year old specs soon, people still enjoy it, a computer of similar complexity could still be used to browse the web somewhat, would have had plenty of hacks and people could still be playing the last 10 years of games on it.
