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.

F-18 Interceptor was a great game, but a bit, well, short. IIRC 5 missions or so? But it was great fun flying it.

Actually I prefer F-19 Stealth Fighter on the Commodore 64. The 3D world had a lot of detail. Probably the best C64 flight simulator, if you can call it that as is simulating a plane that didn't exist officially and turned out to be the F-117. I actually bought this game and still have it somewhere.

Twin Tornado (C64) was also great flying and recently I played F-15 Strike Eagle on the C64 and bombed Libya!
