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.

AROS is probably the way to go (long-term, at least), if you ever find yourself feeling nostalgic.

Present Amigas (the hardware) are really PCs anyway, just choosing a bit weird CPU for no real benefit.

I find myself ever nostalgic!

The last time I tried Aros it only ran as a live cd. Of course I have real Amigas, but one day they'll break down.
