    Which Workbench versions have you used the most?

    Rather than asking you all which version of Workbench is your favourite, as this would return the later releases as most peoples favourites, I thought it would be more interesting to find out which version of Workbench you think you have each used the most over the years?

    For me I think it is probably 2.04. I never owned a 1.3 based machines back in the day and only ever rebooted one of my Amigas into 1.3 to get a game to run rather than to use Workbench. I did you 3.0 a lot once I had an A1200 and then A4000, but before this my only Amiga was the A600 and I used that a lot before and after getting the other models.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    For me it was 1.3 as it was the only one I had to use with my amiga 500. I sold my amiga in 1994 when I got my first PC, and haven't used amigas since early 2000 now, and that is also a 500, and lately a 1200.

    Did you regret selling your original A500 after purchasing the PC?

    Nope, not in the beginning. At that time, I didn't also have a C64 anymore, and didn't regret it. But after some time, when getting older, searching for some retro fun, you get that nostalgic feeling, and you have to buy some of the machines again. And knowing now as I am, I will never sell them again.

    For me I could never have sold my Amigas in the 90's when I moved over to the PC as my main platform. Maybe it was due to collecting such a large collection of original Amiga games, copied games, magazines, manuals and models of Amiga that was the reason I wouldn't have sold them. In fact I was still purchasing original Amiga hardware and software up until around 1998.

    I only had an A600 during the Amiga's heyday. I only got my A1200 as a donation from a family member after the PC had taken over (around year 2000). So 2.04 for me as well.

    I've definitly used Workbench 3.0 the most. Used the 1.3 on the 500 for a few years, until 1994, when I got my first Amiga 1200. Since then I've been using 3.0, but did of course upgrade to 3.1 after a while. Now I'm running Workbench 3.5.

    Had 2.04 for a while as my first Miggy was a 500+
    Sold that to put towards an A1200.
    Have had my A1200 for a lot longer though.
    Used 3.0 for the longest length of time.
    Using 3.9 at the mo.

    I had a 500 for a long time, but never used the workbench on it. So for me it has to be v2.05 on the 600HD.
