This is a bit of a hair splitting exercise. Syndicate is an Amiga icon and it was hugely influential on this platform. So IMO it really is not that relevant that it was released alongside PC version...

They ain't pulling no punches with that Pro version. MiSTer cores? Downscaling modern sources so they can be displayed in 240p on a CRT? Phew.

It's odd, VGP price is 135E, and units on ebay go for 200+. Even the Chinese clones are priced on-par with VGP, which does not make sense. What gives?

Not everybody, no. Which is why I used the word "most". Because majority of people who say that, could make room if they really wanted to. They don't because of other reasons.

It takes ~30 minutes to get Win 10 into a very usable shape. Simplewall, O&O, Classic Start Menu and few under-the-hood tweaks and you're done - no need for LTSC.
