                ***********************************
 
  Time was Amiga was the best graphics compuer around. It stood
  at the very pinnacle of graphics display. Remember when you first
  popped in DeluxePaint and saw all those wonderful images for the
  first time. Breathtaking weren't they? Compared to other computers,
  it was like looking across the vistas of the Grand Canyon.
  
  Times have changed. The Amiga is lagging behind. Time to catch up
  and again be the benchmark of what good graphics are. Hopefully,
  the future will bring dramatic improvements in Amiga graphics
  capabilities. The gap is not large. It is never too late to gather
  momentum catapulting the Amiga to once more being the graphics
  computer of choice. But graphics aren't everything. Right?
  
  I'm told the next Microsoft Windows release will require 300MB of
  drive space and 32MB of memory. That amount of drive space/memory
  for just an operating system boggles my mind. Why? Why so much for
  so little. If this information is correct, Windows will be a behemoth
  facing an ant. The Amiga operating system is microscopic in comparison.
  How can the Amiga get so much out of so little, and Windows require
  so much to get so little? Maybe because Windows is not a fully integrated
  operating system, but a crazy quilt of patches with more patches on
  top of other patches. If size alone mattered (including Windows95),
  then Windows would be the easy victor. But size is irrelevant. Size
  alone determines nothing. Only content matters. And for its miniscule
  size, the Amiga operating system has plenty of content. Why did Gateway
  buy the Amiga? Maybe for the Amiga operating system.
  
  My picture illustrates that the Amiga better get snapping, cracking,
  popping, or whatever it takes to really get moving. Maybe one day soon,   
  people will say, "For snap, crackle and pop, buy an Amiga. The best
  computer around, bar none."

  Isn't this the early dawn of a great new age, or what?
