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.

I want you to write down the permalink URL for this comment on a slip of paper, keep it in a safe, and open that safe in 20 years when your prophecy comes true.

Good insight.

I just hope we will never have to find out.

Like that at some point, when people start to actually get hit by the side effects of today's massive hardware lockdown wave, the European commission will finally beat up Microsoft for a good reason, deal with the secure boot issue themselves, and introduce an EU-wide ban on locked bootloaders for all personal computer OEMs as a side effect. Best possible outcome, IMO.
