The problem is when people from one side of the fence call others Luddite as if they had access to an objective truth about what the proper use of an Amiga should be.

I have no interest for neo-nostalgia, I am interested in getting the most out of a fixed system which in his time was ingenious and powerful. That seems like a hobby as valid as getting the most out of a hike in the mountains, or out of whatever enjoyable activity you prefer.

The software I need serves this purpose. I do not need new software to make the Amiga relevant. The Amiga will never be relevant again unless it changes hands and gets a massive overhaul that most of the community will disapprove of because it will then resemble a PC/Mac anyway.

The fact is that this is an opinion and not a fact.

Also, mathematically this will always be false: there cannot be a bigger market than the stock models by definition. All other derivatives have necessarily less units. This is not to say that they are not valuable but just a reminder of a mathematical reality.
