ESCOM went bankrupt because they held too large a stock of PC components they then had to sell under price. It had nothing to do with their investment into the Amiga.

You mean, we should decide between reality and an alternate reality? Since Amiga went bust in reality, the alternate reality can't be any worse, right? :)

Personally I would always prefer an accelerator that entirely resides inside the Amiga. If it has a magnitude more power than any ACA like the V500 does, even better.
