Attention moderator(s), I apologize even asking this. I just tooled over here, http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=62127
and just realized how taboo it is to even mention. (Sorry about the double post too)
I found the price point for the old C64, $595.00. But, it seemed like it was $895 for some reason. (Maybe because Alan Alda had made a commercial?)
I've just about answered my own questios already. Still, any input might go a long way.
I guess my new inquiry would be, "What's the cheapest way" of obtaining the WorkBench and KickRoms? What is the reason such an old os is so valuable today? (Nobody cares if you get a copy of Windows 2000 do they?) I think 3.9 must be so much exponentially better than other os's that even though it's been longer than 7 years and even changed more than 30%, (actually I'm not too sure as far as having changed 30%, maybe with BoingBag updates?) that MS and Mac must be worth pennies on the dollar when making a fair comparison.
Does Amikit provide any solutions? I saw where ya'll had recommended Amiga Forever. Should I go ahead and consider that? (I'm a little perplexed at how little support there is for something so valuable
Who owns it? Haage and Partner? Should I get with them and see if I can have a fresh copy gmailed my way? I wonder what the original Amiga team is thinking about all this. On one hand, it seems like it was yesterday. On the other it's been a quarter of a century! LOL (half of that for 3.9) What would they say if somebody just gave it away at a garage sale? LOL
OK. I'll hang in there for a response. I'll post any new findings. Thank you very much! jas
