A brilliant machine — as has been said so many times, “Amiga built it, Commodore stuffed it up” … or maybe stronger words were used.

Sometime back in 1985 a friend of mine convinced me that I should scrape up the money and buy an Amiga, and somehow I managed to get a loan together and buy one. My first box of 3.5” floppy disks cost $95! This was at a time when the IBM PC-XTs were only starting to use 720k floppies, and the 1.4M HD ones needed by the Amiga were as rare as hen’s teeth — and just as expensive.
