I first discovered the Amiga when I saw an Amiga Emulator CD listed in a shareware catalogue on disk.
It wasn't cheap, so I thought I'd see what would turn up in Google.
Well, it wasn't long before I had found the (WinUAE) emulator, some disk images and ROMs, and gave it a try.
On the strength of this, about a week later I decided I just had to own a real Amiga, so I bought an Escom AT1200 Magic Pack from Eyetech.
Now I have 3xA500s, an A500Plus, 3xCommodore A1200s and an A4000 as well as four Amiga Forever releases to go with the AT1200.
In my case, the availability online of pirated ROMs and Workbench disks certainly didn't do the Amiga community any harm, and may indeed have given it a boost.
