ohhh now your asking for it!

Meet the guru a few too many times did we? hehe

Actually the OS was not too bad for the time. Pre-emtive multitasking, gui,
etc... (bit touchy though as it didnt have anything in the way of memory
protection to stop different processes playing with memory that didnt belong
to them). And of course much of the magic of the Amiga was in its hardware
which was marvellous for the time, and at the cost made it very much the
premier games machine. (Also found a lot of use in TV production ,
especially after the video toaster came out)

And hey! I remember typing up some essays on my Amiga once so nyah! Wasnt
used entirely for games. I must have spent at least five of the thousands of
hours I used it for serious stuff and anyway it had the best games so its
little wonder gamers loved it :-P

Useability of the Amiga was better than many systems (such as the ancient
DOS boxes) , though certainly not to the same level as the MAC. Have to
agree that one button is all you need. A second one can be useful at times
(ie: paint software / cad / games etc...) but whoever came up with the idea
of context menus deserves a good flogging.

Lol, just don't mention the OS or any kind of usability for the Amiga.
Because it was dreadful.  Also, don't mention that 95% of them were used
as games machines and nothing more ;)

Macs only have one mouse button because that's all you need.  If you
find you need more then you're using a clunky interface :)
