If you don't think it justifies the cost then that's fine. I was just  
trying to stick up for someone's hard work (and they did do a fair  
bit). Not only that but there are some software packages on there  
that I deem essential for using Amiga, like Picasso96 and MUI, that I  
was glad to pay for.

Don't forget also that a lot of the software, the ROMs, and Workbench  
had to be licensed, which all costs.

I personally have never once regretted buying it and I recommend it  
to everyone I know who uses Amiga, be it UAE, or real hardware.
