And there are many people who actually don't play many games at all on it.. my self most of my time is spent using it for telecom/telnet BBS and other non-game stuff and very little time is actually used to play games..
These tasks are completely independent from specific computer. It can be done more effectively on PC/Mac.
There is no point to use Amiga on anything except the games/demos and some Workbench for retro feeling. For internet use it's definitely not the right computer.
Sure, some people like to try to use even ZX Spectrum for internet browsing.. But it's not about internet use than "can it do it?" There is a clear distinction between "Hey, see! It can open web page!" and actual use of internet services. Ignoring modern computer in favour to ancient for internet is not wise at all.
I never said I used it for internet browsing.. and on that I agree.. I only generally use it for era compatible activities .. (like telnet) .. or using FTP/SMB (which is very handy to actually have networking working for transferring files and such) .. But I agree.. using a web browser .. no not really a good idea.
