That's fine. Cranking out a LOAD"*",8,1 is normal and healthy.
But let's not pretend it's anything a community can enjoy.
If there only a few thousand Amigans, I bet there are less than 100 SuperCPU users.
I think writing software for yourself is on of the most rewarding things you can do as a programmer. Hardly a waste of effort.
Porting crap unix software to an even worse closed source dead operating system just because someone made an awesome hardware emulator seems like more of a waste of effort to me.
