Legal We all know about Apple's look-and-feel lawsuit against Microsoft over Windows 2.0, but this wasn't the only look-and-feel lawsuit Apple filed during those years. Digital Research, Inc., the company behind GEM, also found itself on the pointy end of Apple's needle. Unlike the lawsuit against Microsoft, though, Apple managed to 'win' the one against DRI.

Did Apple actually have more market share than the Amiga, at the height of it's popularity?

Yes.

http://arstechnica.com/features/2005/12/total-share/5/ (and 6 & 7; also, keep in mind that most of those were "toy" Amigas - perhaps irrelevant for end users, but certainly relevant WRT company outlook)

I guess it was even quite clear to some already back then that Amiga, with its very tightly coupled hardware and software, was essentially stuck at the 500 generation.

Its says a lot if someone says toy. Still, even the c64 beat every computer in sales.

Whoever made those charts needs to be struck with a wet smelly sock.
