V is for VGA.

A port we didn't have.
A mode that was difficult to use.
The PC display mode that marked the start of Amiga's demise after it became cheap common-place.

W is for Warhol. Andy Warhol was featured on the cover of Amiga World magazine. http://www.amigahistory.co.uk/warhol.html
After his death, his Amiga art movie project titled YOU ARE THE ONE was discovered and reconstructed. http://www.detroitmona.com/still_famous.htm

A is for Aegis

Once a nice company. I remember Aegis Animator... I used to make stars "in love" dance together... (ok I copied from someone else, but did it very nicely and was jaw-dropping at the time)
