FLI has nothing to do with interlace though.

In practice this will give maybe 30 more colors in addition to the sixteen built in, because you have to use low contrast once to not have flickering. In theory, maybe 128 colors.
You get exactly 136 different color combinations, how many of them are useful is a different matter.

Depends on what you do with them, the ST is better suited for certain tasks while the Amiga is better at others.
