What about those here on EAB who said that the Amiga FAILED because it hasn't survived to the present day in some modern incarnation?

Yeeeeessssss, I've heard of this weird anomaly with PC owners and their graphics, like they DESPISE pixel ratios of 1:2 or 2:1, preferring instead perfectly SQUARE pixels. Rather baffling, really.

I figured that there was too much tech inside the modulator to fit in the A500 case itself, which was already crammed with the Amiga tech proper. Same for the PSU. The PSU issue never bothered me...

That is one fucking AMAZING demo!

Sceners are really pushing the envelope with A500 demos lately, with classics like The Fall, De Profundis, Eon and now this.

I have to agree: separate bitplanes may be a boon for 2D scrolling games, but it's certainly not designed for word processing or DTP in Workbench. I'll never forget the snail's pace of updates,...

OP, in your OP, you mention the word "work" NINE times. The Amiga was for gaming, not work.

Surely someone knows the specification that WinUAE runs fine at?

Maybe it's the graphics card that matters? I don't HAVE a graphics card, I use the on-board Intel UHD 630 graphics of the i3-8100.
