You claim to know why the Amiga demoscene is "oh so dead" without being a real part of it. And complaining about something is easy but it does not lead to a more active scene.

It has because you speak for any active Amiga demo coder so I would expect that you have at least created one demo on the machine you're dissing here (accelerated 680x0) so you know how much work it is to create demos for these limited machines (yes, also an 68060 A4000 has quite a few limitations which are not always easy to bypass!).
Which is why I wholeheartedly disagree with your opinion, yes.

You seem to forget that it's not the 90s anymore. While I truly love 68000 OCS demos I also enjoy good 680x0 demos. Without the latter the Amiga scene would be even smaller and if that would be a good thing you can decide for yourself.
