I think it's fair to suggest that most STs and Amigas only ever sold to hangers-on from the 8-bit home computer boom. I mean, try finding someone who ever says their first computer was an ST or Amiga..?
i think most people bought them for pirate games!.
8 bit death article was great,reading about magazine sales figures,out of curiosity on an unrelated issue of mag sales of dying machines,i dug out some old amiga format magazines,from 1994 the readership figure was 140,000 by 2000 the readership figure was down to 11,000.
