And hwy? because it's more interesting and groundbreaking to make a limited machine do more, than a less limited machine do it.
Yes obviously, the limitations make things interesting, but that's just one aspect of it.
The Apollo-core is a new hardware platform that no one really knows what it's truly capable of until someone tries to push it. Also, it's still very limited compared to a modern PC.
I see no logic in refusing to see the system pushed to its limits with a demo tbh. You can still have your A500, A1200 demos and what not ;-)
