I wholeheartedly agree with your first sentence.
But my comment wasn't negative criticism, you just took the bad parts of it and made it negative.

The problem I expressed in another thread is that the Vampire and Apollo core lands on middle ground between the past and the future Amiga stuff. As such, your first phrase will sadly resonate throughout their whole development.

As an add-on for old hardware, I find it hard to justify.
As a roadmap to a stand-alone computer, I think it's brilliant.

I am very excited about what you are working on, but I just can't help but feel that showing Monkey Island 2 running on a Vampire does the Vampire and the Apollo core no benefit. How about a video with the latest version of OpenBOR showing a bad-ass beat'em up? That'd be much better IMO.

Again, was trying to be constructive.
