Quite the contrary - perfect way to use an Amiga!

All it takes is for an Amiga nutcase* to see this and we'll have endless videos of ST machines being trashed. It's an asshole thing to do to working vintage equipment.

*They're not all nutcases obviously!

Statistically, the offspring of Amiga users have more fingers than average. They also have furr.

Very handy when e.g. playing the banjo, if shaven properly.

Not something I personally like to see, waste of hardware. But I doubt this was a 'targeted Amiga terrorist attack' :lol:

Probably someone goofing around and happened to have an old broken Amiga in his loft, from the looks of the video it wasn't the only think they'd destroyed that day.

What a stupid thing... if he had no use for it, he could give it to someone that had...

I seem to have fur too, yet I'm a first generation ST and Amiga user!

STs are too expensive to trash these days. Anyway, the real enemy are the IBM users. They destroyed Atari and Commodore with their constant obsession with beeping green screen monsters. The rise of the IBM clones literally killed computing for me.

I wonder how many Falcons were crushed in landfill, without so much as a Youtube video?

Well, unlike the jaguar users, they have offspring!

What a waste. If that had poked someone's eye out they wouldn't have laughed. No eye protection or anything.

The serious point is that even though the computer is old it could have been used for spare parts. There is another video on YouTube of a guy breaking up an Outrun Cabinet. There were only 30000 of them ever made in the world. Someone could have spruced up that cabinet.
