My first Amiga (and my third computer, my first being a Sharp PC1211 handheld, and my second a later model by Sharp) was an A500 gifted to me with a few floppy disks by a neighbour who was a programmer. I played Populous so much for a while that when I closed my eye to go to sleep, I was still seeing little coloured dots moving around (can you get 'burn in' on yoru retinas? 8-}). Not long after, I moved to be with my new partner, whom I new to be a pinball fan. I was out of work at the time, and so had plenty of time in which to muck about on the Miggy and see if I could get a couple of the disks I'd inherited with the machine to work. I can still remember the look of joy on her face when she returned home from work and I had Pinball Dreams running (which I later bought, btw. Well worth it!).
Back then, computing was fun, there was more sense of wonder in some ways, partly due to the novelty, I'm sure. Eventually I found a job and was able to buy an A1200 which I bought a 68030 board and tower kit for. The Amiga set the bar high for my expectations of what my future computer expeience would be like though, to the point that Intel PCs with Windows were a huge and painful disappointment. I wasn;t averse to occasionally looking through teh innards of software on teh Amiga. On the Intel PC, I very rapidly came to the conclusion that its innards were best left well alone, as it crashed a lot more than the Amiga did anyway (and the Amiga DID crash - a lot, by modern standards).
Which made me look around for soemthing better, and so I encountered Linux. I could see the potential, but the user experience was just plain nasty, and so we struggled on with Wintel, with me keeping an eye on Linux development now and then. Eventually, Linux got to a point where I was happy with it, and have been using Linux ever since. My (now) ex persisted with Windows for some years(and became better with Windows than me), but is fine with Linux too. We both still have very fond memories of our early days with the Amiga though.
The nearest I've gotten to that sense of fun and wonder has been recently, first with Minecraft and even more so with Kerbal Space Program, running on Linux Mint. Wow, just - wow. And I've now come across Renoise, which looks as if it'll do as a replacement for my much beloved and long-lamented OctaMed.
One thing that puzzled me - given that the Amiga WP's did everything I've ever needed a Word Processor to do, how come Word and Writer are such behemoths?! And why are boot times so slow on modern hardware considering how much faster it is than the old Miggys were?!
