Gamecube technology, upd it twice, added a motion remote and channels.
People bought it. Its really how that market nowadays work.

Many Amiga people think that Cloanto is evil. But I think really
they are not. At least you paying for Amiga ROMS, your supporting the Amiga Community rather than stealing from it. But thats just my opinion.
I love your analogy with the Gamecube. Makes perfect sense! Do you have the link to the free, open-source Gamecube program?

As for supporting the Amiga Community, I do not see in anyway whatsoever how buying kickstart roms is supporting the community.
