Interesting about Mr. Hauser's comment regarding the Amiga. As an advisory teacher in 1990, Commodore sent a team to show us the value of having Amigas as the educational computer of the future. They did their demo, including BBC Basic. We showed them RISCOS. They left. They were very unsuccessful in the education market, but of course they did try marketing. Perhaps Acorn should have taken marketing seriously. After all, Microsoft did. And they've done quite well!!
