See that's part of the problem.

The original Amiga was a ground breaking machine.  In the mid-1980's, it 
bundled in so many technologies that were completely absent in the PC 
and underdeveloped or absent in the Mac.

To try to build a completely new computer and slap the "Amiga" name on 
it, and to do it with hardware more deserving of a cable tv set-top box, 
just goes to show you.  There is nothing "Amiga" about this, except for 
the name, which apparently gets some people feeling pretty randy.  It 
had better, because without the name you don't have much of anything there.
