Im not fond of WinUAE at all really. Its good to look at some of the games again on it.. but i wouldnt recommend to a person who is new to the Amiga to try out an emulator, because in my opinion they will just ended up hating the Amiga.
Its a real Amiga on a real Amiga Monitor or a TV or nothing!. Also to get the resolution to look proper on WinUAE you need to look at much smaller version of the Amiga's screen..
Emulators are good, but F#@K them.
