    Yes my companions on TA-ML have lots of unhappiness over the
behavior of these companies but I doubt any real hate.  That is for
the computer religionists who are stuck in the past.  The Amiga
was a lot more fun than the MS-DOS machines and
way ahead of Windows until long after CBM turned up its toes.

   Actually a lot of Amigans who know the story hate the people who
liquidated the company. An investor who took the company away
from the founder and his henchman, a CEO type.  The CEO was just
following the chief shareholder's directions.
    I used to write articles about it for the Amiga UG newsletter.

    Anyway on Linux I don't expect Linus Torwalds to stab anyone
in the back and make a platform obsolete.
