Well it beats "Wondere Wereld" on theme music alone.

Then again, 26 is prolly too young to remember that "wonderfully" hi-tech programme.

"Silly Putty" was the title of the game when it was a pack-in for the A600. The game was released as a stand-alone title as "Putty". I've heard rumours that this was because Binney & Smith Corp (the...

The same goes for Workbench 3.1 (not Kickstart 3.1; that was available in the CBM CD32 and...

As a Mac user I wouldn't buy a new Amiga if it came out; I'm perfectly happy with my current platform of choice.

I never understood why Amiga Tech isn't launching it's own "console" with 30 games-or-so preloaded.

TOS is a lot simpler than AmigaOS/Kickstart.

Don't forget that AmigaOS is a real multitasking OS that runs on custom hardware where TOS is basically...well... DR-GEM running on an 68000.

I can confirm all three Lotus games run fine on a standard A600 (not so on an A1200 though).
