    Especially from a community that continues to pretend that "hardware isn't everything". Yet turn your back and they go run out and buy the highest end card they can get away with. A 2003-era Radeon 9000 like I had in my Peg-1 will still easily run almost everything available.

    Hardware is everything. My problem is - AmigaOS does not use it (driver problem). My x1000 with SSD, Radeon 7770 1Ghz, 2GB DDR5, 2x2 MB DDR2 and Sound Blaster 5.1 performs like a different machine once its on modern Linux PPC. Internet is way faster via inbuild ethernet, CPU and disk and memory performance doubles amd RAM and gfx card are fully used (OK gfx card not so much due to infamous bug, but it was the case with original XFX Radeon HD 6870)

    Problem is that it turned out that any NG Amiga investment - be it faster gfx card, more RAM or gfx, simply (under AmigaOS) does not translate to performance increase. Only real "fly away" was an SSD.
