It died in Holland when I wastransporting it back to UK in the boot of my car and someone crashed into mewhilst I was parked - tosser. (My GVP HD8+ survived, it cost more than theA500!) I had been thinking of getting an A600 at the time anyway but the A1200came along just then so I got my first of those instead (which I still have) toreplace it. So all in all I suppose its death was not in vein.

Car was a write off though (bent chassis) and I had whiplash - but who caresthat was only a car and a sore neck for a few days. :)

I'd conjecture that the reason why the 8 bit C world is more active is due toone main factor, namely, that it had a larger user base to start from. Those whohave memories of those machines did not all move on to Amiga. Some went PCwhilst others moved to Mac or ST. 8 Bit interest is therefore gathered fromusers of all these later, competing, systems and not, as with the Amiga, from amore limited user base.

03/08/2017 12:57 - In my case, I *did* move to the Amiga while continuing to use Commodore 8-bits. The two are not mutually exclusive but complementary. As I have told my friends, the Commodore is the work computer; the Amiga is the hobby computer.

Nope... didn't really go PC, Mac, or ST.
