Now how do you make an "Amiga" compatible with old software but as powerfull as a 3D0,PSX etc cost affective at the time?
Just do the same as apple did (emulation layer), or Sony did with the PS2 (use the old CPU as an i/o controller, but it's there for emulation).

As for getting into bed with atari/apple. I've often thought, if they'd bought out Atari's computer business (Atari wanted out to concentrate on Jaguar)and added added an ST emulation to the A1200,and midi ports, they could have captured that segment of the market.
