Graphics, User Interfaces It's been one of my major pet peeves on both Android and iOS: the total and utter lack of consistency. Applications - whether first party or third party - all seem to live on islands, doing their own thing, making their own design choices regarding basic UI interactions, developing their own non-standard buttons and controls. Consistency died five years ago, and nobody seems to care but me.

But Amiga CDTV and CD32 don't really boot into anything if there's no media, IIRC (only one buddy with CDTV, one with CD32, everybody else had 600, and it's been some time). They just display an intro of sorts, encouraging you to put the CD in (kinda like all the other Amigas & their floppy animation)

Yeah, they can play audio CDs, but I imagine that NEC TurboGrafx-CD (1988) also does that - and anyway, PS1 added nice audio visualisations ;) (then there's still that memory card manager)
