Sadly, mention Amiga here in the US and very few people my age know about it. The Amiga was very small here, as was the Atari ST. The Mac and IBM ruled the roost. Even though both the Amiga and Atari ST kicked their respective asses , at least until Mac and IBM got sexier in the early 90's. The C=64, however, is beloved here. Apple ][e as well.
