The more I learn about Amiga history, the more I think Linux got off lightly with just Microsoft and SCO as the main opponents.

To be sure, Amiga faced stiff competition, but frankly the worst enemy it faced was Commodore itself. Poor (European market) or non-existent (North American market) marketing, failure to keep pace with the competition in terms of hardware and the failure to create any sort of system to really fill the gap between the low-end "game console with a keyboard" A500/600/1200 systems and the high-end workstations (A1000/2000/3000/4000) are all problems of Commodore's own making.There was no "shadowy cabal" that stood in opposition to the the Amiga. Bad corporate decision making killed it without any outside help.
