Not that surprising. Consider that most Microsoft employees are in their late twenties and thirties, so many of them are of the right age to have been exposed to the amiga, either by owning one or by knowing someone who did. The guy who keeps that blog must be one of those. One has to wonder how many "micro$oft drones" are actually ex-amigans...

There was that MS employee who (re) programmed the Boing demo to show some Avalon3D. He clearly declared "having my roots in Amiga..."

Well, that's normal. Most of people aged 25-30 have seen/used Amiga. If our designer wouldn't left company, we would have 5 people of 6 who owned/own Pegasos/Amiga.

You're right, I know people who are 25-30 who had/still have Amigas. We often talk of "good old time", when we had our firts A500s while other friends bought STs or worst, PCs.
Some of these people don't have amigas any more, but others still use them.
But we still all want a reactive OS like the AmigaOS was on classic machines. Aros is on this way...
