    Commodore *actively* killed the Amiga. There are good stories to be heard from David Pleasance on that (all can be found on YT). And yeah at its apogee it was quite ahead of the competition, hell Win95 as a piece of garbage compared to what AmigaOS was able to do 5 years before. So the situation in that case was a bit special and cannot be compared...

    So true. How did that mobile card game go for Lord British ? haha. They are entering a shark filled pond, anything can happen. If they crash and burn, we can go "HA HA !" and point at them and laugh.

    Say what?! I must have missed his latest venture. I'd have thought that after Scams of the Avatar he was a proven busted flush and would have the decency to hide in shame...

    Yeah, with that stunt, Blizzard seem to have reached "sense of pride and accomplishment" levels meme-wise.

    Apparently a 'Murican thing.
    Why does it surprise you that they have various national food days?

    Screw it, if I had a paperclip factory I'd lobby for a National Paperclip Appreciation day. Preferably showing lots of paperclips being used by the military with loads of flags all over the place.
