Not a very good counter-example. My A500 had several commercially available hardware enhancements, such as a 68030 card with extra RAM.

It's about more than hardware[edit]

Certainly hardware compatibilty and commonality has a great deal to do w/ OA, but software applications have equal importance in the the OA construct. The key to OA is that is serves as a business model allowing competition in the market fostering innovation and improvement in computing systems. Much more to follow...

Competition and price?[edit]
