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.

Multitasking on the Amiga was great though, even more if you consider the hardware specifications.

You never experienced 'something' slowing down what you were doing.

Even running on floppies went fine, but if you added a hard disk it was beyond great.
