How much fun can you have?
Back in 1986, almost all computers were dogs. Stupid, stubborn and, worse than dogs, dull. The Amiga was the liberator. With very little money, I was digitizing stop-action animation (New-Tek digiview), sequencing and sampling sounds (linking via MIDI to my Casio CZ-101), rendering infographics in paint programs sucking data from spreadsheets (via AREXX), banging out code to render beautiful fractals. Sharing cool hacks with a great community. I never got around to playing any games. It was geek heaven for a kid on a shoestring. Thanks, Dave, Jay (RIP), et. al!
