I won't necessarily disagree with your assessment of these websites, but I have to say that there is a market for those that would rather be able to buy a prepackaged image. I know that if it were not for AmiKit, I would have not learned what I know now. I can build a machine from the ground up now, but not before AmiKit. There is a large learning curve to overcome for those that have no or very little knowledge of the workings of the Amiga. I empathize with Mark on this one. Let's all be kind to one another.
I have to agree with you. After spending 30+ years supporting Windows/MacOS/Linux, I don't have the time to re-learn all the ins-and-outs of classic AmigaOS. I'd rather just pay a reasonable price for a pre-configured CF or SD card that is plug-and-play and go from there. I also see nothing wrong with it in light of the fact that I have 4 licensed copies of AmigaOS that shipped with my now long-dead Amigas. The only Amiga that I still own that is functional is an A1200 and even it will be shelved once I have a standalone Vampire.
