Amiga & AROS The Amiga changed the computer industry. It was based on a multitasking operating system, rivaled the graphics power of some workstations and was affordable enough for home users. Unfortunately, Commodore struggled to maintain Amiga's lead, and through a number of bizarre business decisions (refusing to license the Amiga design to Sun), went bankrupt.

I never bought an AGA Amiga but I did know that I couldn't run AGA games on my OCS A500.

You'd have difficulty running a DX10 game in DX5, too. Where Commode and Atari got it wrong was in making sure it was difficult to run an OCS or ECS game or program on an AGA machine, too.

It wasn't difficult to run OCS or ECS games on AGA machines, the majority worked, and some could be made to work by disableing CPU caches (which was simple to do.)
