By extension, you think that the Amiga brand is worth millions?

Something is only worth anything because people desire it, the name is something associated with that desire.

Maserati = cool sports car = desirable to people who've heard of it and know what it is / stands for.

Amiga nowadays = what exactly...?

Difficult to desire something that isn't anything anymore no matter how iconic (to some) the name used to badge it.
