I already figured Barry was only in it for the money, doesn't actually give a fig about Commodore or the Amiga except as brand names that got famous for a while and might still be exploitable, and is derisive of anybody who feels differently. The interview didn't give any new information, but it did at least provide public confirmation for those suspicions.

I'm satisfied with answers, but it does not change my opinion. I'm simply not interested in this kind of "Amiga".

Few would have given Barry any grief if he had just released Commodore branded PCs with retro styling, instead of tacking the C64 and Amiga brands on machines that don't warrant them. He doesn't seem to understand why so many people hate what he's doing.
He's a huckster, and little else.

I set up this poll with as many responses i could think of with multiple choices allowed so please forgive me if i missed a response.

Let the trolling begin!
The bold portion negates everything you said earlier. If you are open minded, you wouldn't say "not likely but possible" because you are already pre-staging a bias which is contradictary to open-minded. To be open-minded means non-biased.

I think Windstar fails to realise that there is a history and that reading behind the lines of his interview the Baron has quite a talent for male cow excrement (BS)
