agreed. Amstrad did the right thing with the ZX Spectrum, and released the roms to the community, in turn creating a thriving emulation scene.

I have a real problem with Cloanto charging such money for something they had -nothing- to do with the creation or development of. Sell their nicely reporoduced videos of the Amiga company at a push, but kickstarts and UAE? seems a bit much to me.

the guy IFW refers to, sounds a lot more worthy of it.
