We always called the Amiga "girlfriend".
the thing is, I don't mind if the common man doesn't know what an Amiga is anymore. Lot's of people don't know what a Dreamcast or a 3DO is.
But I just cannot understand when someone that works with computers doesn't know what an Amiga is. I mean, it was a very important computer, the first real multitasking capable computer and you're an IT guy! Know your roots, man!
