Their so-called successes and creations are rarely ground breaking and almost always obsessed with the bottom dollar and nothing else. I disagree.

Now, which of the two wound up as the world's richest man, and which one died in obscurity, despite being credited with the creation of everything from television to anti-grav devices?
You are comparing these two as to how they finished up? How pessimistic and materialistic of you. That is no way to judge a man. I would have said Tesla over Gatesy boy anyday.

About 80% of the world lives in the " Be realistic " mindframe. And 50% of the world is on antideppresants and arent happy. Push yourself, push new ideas, push hope... Most people say them to themselves " oh whats the point "... " oh it wont work "... " oh the world is fucked anyway, why bother "...etc... I used to be the most "realistic" person you could get, and it wasnt getting me or anyone else around me anywhere.
Well said. I don't know about the Amiga ever coming back, but I admire your attitude. The world needs more people like you.
