Why should we all forget about the Amiga 4000/060 Tower and buy PCs?? Easy!

1) Because 8-charecter filenames are *FUN* for the whole family! Round
   up the wife and kids, and have a game of "Guess The Filename!".
   Countless hours of deciphering cplx abrvtd flnms (complex appreviated
   filenames) await you with the purchase of your new PC!
2) Windows3.1!! -Real- operating systems demand far too much of their users.
   Using a dressed-up program launcher which lacks the ability to store
   applications in subdirectories alleviates the user from having to
   remember where he or she stored those pesky, overhyped, nonstandardized,
   overgrown, RAM hungry, sluggish applications you'll come to know
   and love!
3) 100% Multitasking-Free! The PC makes such an excellent choice over
   so-called "superior" platforms like the Amiga because the PC wont
   confuse you, the user, with the difficulties involved in keeping
   track of several things at the same time! TAKE YOUR TIME! You only
   have to worry about doing -just one- thing at a time on your PC!
   Infact, hundreds of programmers at Microsoft are busy working on
   new and innovative ways to prevent your PC from being forced to
   "multy-task" in the future, by cleverly disguising their efforts
   to protect your comfort as "General Protection Faults" and system
   lock-ups! Their newest product, Windows95, will even SLOW DOWN
   your entire system to allow you more time to think if you try
   and make your PC multy-task! What a plus!
4) Configurability -- Lets face it. There are few things more enjoyable
   in this world than sitting down with your trusty PC and having the
   priveledge of changing the wide variety of IRQ settings, jumpers,
   CMOS settings, .BAT files, hex addresses, COM port assignments, and
   memory reigons that are available to you as a PC user. Don't let
   anybody tell you that it's no fun! Just imagine all the enjoyment
   you'll have spending quality-time with your machine, and growing
   emotionally closer to your motherboard. You'll begin to care for
   your PC just like the indigent, scenile, bed-ridden vegetable of
   a Grandmother you never had as a kid! But wait, theres more!
   The fun doesn't end there! Luckilly, the "standards" in the PC
   community are changed radically about every 8 months, so you'll
   have endless fun trading configuration tips and tricks with your
   friends! Not since the ALTAIR 8008 has there been a computer with
   such a wide variety of interface, memory, sound, and graphics standards!
   Now, YOU can enjoy the FUN and EXITING options which other so-called
   "superior" platforms like the Amiga leave out, or dont even have!
5) Graphics power! Today's PC's are actually capable of SCROLLING!!
   Yes--you heard me, an entire graphic image can me smoothly moved
   up and down!! Hold on to your hats--thats not all! Today's PC
   can even scroll graphics HORIZONTALLY! Let your imagination take you
   new horizons with this incredible new graphics capability. You'll
   finally be able to tell all those mean Apple II & C64 user's who the
   REAL boss of 1995 is! Imagine the thrill of discovering that software
   you previously own can be easilly (only 2 hours of work!) reconfigured
   to use the $400 graphics card needed to do smooth scrolling !
6) Sound power! You'll be reminded of gentle summers around the campfire
   once you hear the authentic pop & crackle of a typical PC's sound
   system. You'll swear you were hearing the bell's of St. Mary's when
   you experience the 1-bit INTERNAL SPEAKER which comes STANDARD in
   every PC! Thats right--no expensive add-on's here! You'll also
   enjoy the pleasure of re-configuring every piece of software you own
   to use a seperate sound card in the future! The wide variety of
   poppy and scratchy sound cards available for the PC will push the
   envelope of sound performance available on ANY personal computer!
7) Many different program interfaces to learn and enjoy! It can be
   awfully boring for so called "superior" platform users like Amiga
   fanatics to be forced to use the SAME way of loading and saving files,
   running programs, and selecting options. With the PC, each application
   you use has a DIFFERENT and FUN way of accessing options, and files!
   Each application has its own distinct look, feel, and personality!
   You'll become to attached to your new-found friends as you spend
   even more quality time getting to know them! Now YOU can be the
   "individualist", running the --truly-- "creative" computer! Forget
   about those Amiga guys! Buy a PC -TODAY!-
