Because, although the Amiga is "ancient" by computer standards, it's still one of the most sophisticated pieces of homecomputers you're likely to see. Just about all other homecomputers have been far far less advanced.

Remember, in 1998, the Amiga could still do quite a few things with a 68030/50MHz processor, that a Pentium-II 300 would struggle with. Emulating an A500 on my old AMD Athlon 1600+ from 2003, was still a quirky thing and not always an enjoyable task.

Even todays PC with quad and six core CPU's, is still a fairly "simple" computer (although a devillishly fast one) compared to the Amiga. There's a reason why the Amiga could emulate a 486PC with halfdecent speed some 5 years before the PC could emulate a basic 7MHz A500

What can I say...? By the way my 68030 is 33mhz. 68060 was 50mhz. Are there any new amiga games and machines today?Are there any guys that use real amigas for business and not emulators?Recently Macintosh computers are rising in popularity.Is there any chance amiga will ressurect with new advanced machines?
