X for Xenon and Xenon-II

(why do we keep mentioning games?... ok maybe the ones I mentioned are well known, but I read some really obscure "wanted-to-write-something-but-didn't-have-something-important" titles that really don't add to the dictionary...)

A is for A1200

The last "proper" Amiga computer and probably the best (IMO of course).

E is for file Extensions
Things which are barely used on Amigas and mostly serve a cosmetic purpose. With the exception of icons(.info) and some others (.library and .device are commonly used but not mandatory)
