My point remains though that none of this stuff (roms, etc) is going to end up free if people keep paying for it. As far as I know, this isn't a problem with other old/dead platforms. Well, there's the PC in a C64 case thingy but the less said about that, the better....

No Apologies are necessary, after reflecting a bit, i realise that you are 100% correct. The more i think about the 'new Commodore' the more disgusted i feel about their decision to repackage a crumby windows machine in a C-64 clothing.

Its all down to business Cloanta saw a market for the Amiga and to make some money and went for it as do a lot of other Amiga based packages.....The person i really feel sorry for is Toni Wilen who devotes so much time to Winuae ( without that the roms really are worth shite ) and he survives on donations yet all these packages use his free application and they dont even need to ask permission !!

I do hope however they look after him in some way

Edit....Probably not literally survives but you know what i mean
You're right, Toni is top shelf. Thanks Toni for the hard work.
