Yes a sad tale indeed. Irving Gould and Mehdi Ali milked Commodore and the Amiga dry. However I think it is hardly likely that the Amiga would have been an alternative to Microsoft. Also one should not sweep under the rug some of the technical goofs that led to Amiga's failure 1) The hurried and incomplete implementation of AmigaDos 1.0 It was a hurry up conversion of Tripos, with a very weak memory Debt Management scheme 2) The decision to invent their own incompatible disk recording scheme. This lead to expenses for users, and difficulties in program interchange. 3) The crazy choice of memory chips for the 2000 or was it the 3000 4) The shoddy Amiga monitor. 5) The effort spent on the bridge card. 6) The slow rate of development for Amigados 2.0 and Rom Kernel 2.0 7) The almost complete stop for Amigados 3.0 and the Roms. (But that was already when these were under development in Britain and Germany) The bright spots were that: Amigados could have been perhaps fixed. Fred Fish and the contributed library, The Toaster. Also perhaps if the finances had not fallen apart the Amiga could have been reimplemented using the Motorola-IBM personal power chip, or the Transputer. In either case the video scheme and the disks were dead ends. Who knows what ever happened to the patents, and other property rights connected with Amiga? -- Rostyk

Well your problem was that you were using a 68030. Workloads are a different issue from single app time to solution. I was not part of the...
P.s. I probably could resurrect my A3000 if I could find a compatible monitor. Mine crapped out with the burned out fly back transformer. Oh and the external disk drive crapped out as well.
