Any Amiga users on this list?

I find those older scsi HD's never die (unlike the newer ones). I wanted to
try programming on the original hardware since I have the monitor for the
500. I dont need any of the newer os's just to play around with and I think
OS 4 and the hardware platform will be stillborn anyway.

Emulation is ok if you dont have the real thing to mess around with.
