Amiga was a mind-blowing platform for 1985. But sadly, Commodore was a company mortally-wounded by the price wars of 1984; unable to market the Amiga to the millions who bought a C64 and unwilling to spend the cash needed to keep Amiga competitive during the 1990's.

Amiga-like OS'es (MorphOS, AROS, Amiga OS4) are interesting, but ultimately hampered by a measly selection of applications, and outdated approaches to protected memory and other conventions of modern OS design. The modern OS which comes closest to capturing the spirit of Amiga would definitely be DragonFlyBSD. Lead developer Matthew Dillon has taken many of the lessons from his Amiga days in designing his fork of FreeBSD.
