Linux has an issue with not enough software developers....Amiga is like 10 thousand times worse :classic_sad:

So at the moment its really just a nostalgia thing.

Linux has an issue with not enough software developers and user population/humanity who are just looking for the simplest OS possible, privacy, freedom and other considerations be damned....Amiga is like 10 thousand times worse  30 years ago existed in a different world, and was an exciting proprietary computing platform embraced by the entirely different, but obviously much smaller, demographic of early adopters and enthusiasts which got killed off by the PC open standard. May she rest in peace.


So at the moment its really just a nostalgia/retro gaming thing.

 Sorry for necroing, couldn't help but add .02.

this kinda reminds me of linux. Buying a powerful laptop or desktop and running something lite like linux.


I guess, although the original Amiga OS had very little in common with Linux, it was much lighter. In fact most games etc. would just use a very low level API layer and program the hardware directly, whereas in Linux (and Windows) everything has to go through libraries and kernel drivers.
