If commodore had $$millions in `92, would the amiga still be around?

Just wondered, would the amiga still be around now or would it have eventually morphed into a pc but with Amiga OS instead of generic PC`s with windows?

Back in the day when commodore went bust and we basically saw the death of the amiga, like the spectrum, c64, bbc and every other computer, i often wished it could be rescued somehow.

Now i realise that is was never meant to last. A keyboard with everything built in was never going to compete with a PC. Which was basically a bunch of components made by specific companies, all specialising in thier stuff, sound cards, ram, processors etc Instead of 1 company doing them all like commodore.

I guess to be where the PC is you need to have had billions i.e bill gates so maybe the end was inevitable regardless.
