Solène created a week-long private computing problem round previous computer systems. I selected to make use of an Amiga for the week. On this situation I write about my expertise, and what trendy computing misplaced when Commodore died. I additionally need to present among the issues you are able to do with an Amiga and even an emulator in the event you’d prefer to attempt.
I’ve tried to get into the Amiga-like working methods – MorphOS, AROS, Amiga OS 4 – however the platform simply doesn’t swimsuit me. I discover them convoluted, incomprehensible, and frustratingly tough to make use of. Not that it issues – I’m not right here to break the Amiga group’s get together – but when they need to maintain that group as an alternative of getting it die out as their consumer numbers dwindle as a result of previous age, they could need to contemplate making their working methods rather less… Obtuse.
