Almost cried when I read that as I too was a vintage 1984 A1000 Amiga owner.
I passed it on to my sister.  It still rocks and rolls Marble Madness.  I
don't think the WinTel platform has caught up yet to the 1984 A1000 Amiga.
I think Commodore shot themselves in the foot, and then decided the best
next move was to get a bigger gun, and do it again.

I's still and amazing machine, and my favorite.
