Happy birthday Amiga!!

To celebrate this occassion, I'm going to do a short poem about Amiga on the spot:

When the Amiga first saw the light of day
the computer-worlds worries drained away

We said hi to the boingball and 8-bit sound
and to the games we played round after round

With an OS like Workbench we were on the top
Microsoft's DOS could just drop dead and rot

The era of multi-tasking hit us like a beam
we couldn't believe, was it all a dream?

The Amiga had come to the world to stay
with it's power and soul, it will never go away

Communities was formed, and here we are today
at Classicamiga we say HAPPY birthday!!

Wow ... I can't believe it's been 22 years already. Time sure passes quickly.

Anyway, happy birthday to our favourite computer platform!
