111.11 Euros to unlock it. Nope.

Just installed from the CD fine. Runs fine too.

Yep, worked as advertised for that half hour. Nice fast Amiga. The
directory tree & everything reminded me of the A500 I once had and the
copy of FS-UAE I run now. Neat to be sure but not neat enough for that
much money. I've already replaced it with Xubuntu 12.04LTS.

Live like you will never die, love like you've never been hurt, dance
