Amiga & AROS Good interview with Steven Solie - this bit stood out to me: "Although Hyperion has been using serial numbers for copies of AmigaOS since 4.0, it won't reveal sales numbers. Solie's 'personal guess' is that the system has 2000-5000 users. 'If you include all the various Amiga clones and emulators we would probably be talking about around 10000 users [in] total,' he adds, 'it is really difficult to judge because a majority of the users are rather quiet.'" Fascinating number - lower than I anticipated.

...that what Amiga really need, to get a lot of support are:

1. Ability to run a full HTML5 browser.
2. One good Accounting package
3. One good DAW
4. One good Video editor
5. One good photo/paint application
6. Libreoffice or openoffice support
7. Good, comprehensive media player

This will cover the needs of about 90% of the population who don't care about games.

(I am a Amiga noob so maybe it can do some already.)
