Most web games like that are flash/Silverlight based which won't run on an AmigaOne. Most websites should work reasonably well though, like Facebook itself. However it will never be as fast or as compatible as a mainstream OS on a "normal" computer.

The best solution I have found is always to have a normal computer in addition to hobby machines. That way you're never stuck being unable to play a certain game or open a certain document.

Although, he could dual boot Linux and have the bets of both worlds

A G4 or even a G5 mac is cheap to get and can give you Morphos access ...

Your wife needs to upgrade by playing Turrican II on the Amiga

she played a lot turrican 2 and liked it ! ;-)
You know, i'm ready to back to the amiga but like i used my amiga 4000 for everything, i wanted to do it with a next gen amiga... Sadly it seems impossible! they need to continue to improve amiga os. someone should try to make a kickstarter to port all these little software to the amigaone. Perhaps it will faill but if nobody try ??? no way to make it happen !
