Classic? You mean 'cult', don't you? Really, there's nothing 'classic' about it yet and probably never will. I only see people talking about 'power users' wanting/buying it and I seriously wonder what they will use it for.

No. See above. Nobody that never used an Amiga before will even notice or if they do, but it. Neither will it attract people that switched to other platform before to 'come back'. Those who still use an Amiga today will think at least twice if they want to spend so much for it. Which means that there will be little interest to make commercial software, except for the occasional enthusiastic team or open source conversion.

Hope someone can explain me what they will use it for, except the 'what I do on Linux/Mac/Windows today' argument.
