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.

Amiga brought large part of those software categories to the masses. But, since then, the world has passed it by many times over.
Let it rest already (and admire what it was in better times)

And ports of Webkit are there, Libre or Open Office would be also (likely inferior) ports of what's available elsewhere - what's the point / why would people suddenly jump on Amiga bandwagon?
