There are a few parallels that can be drawn between Apple in 1995/6 and the Amiga progress now. Efficient but inferior hardware, still primarily a 68k code base (if not in OS then certainly applications).

After a few false starts, Amiga is progressing past 1994. I found the article stoked my enthusiasm a bit & I'm happy that Amiga is following in the footsteps of Apple.
