The Amiga. Compatibility is the main problem. If all of your
colleagues are using Macs and/or MS-DOS machines, then it
doesn't matter how "good" the Amiga (or anything else) is
in abstract terms. No campus can afford to support all
platforms; and most people will opt for those that are
already are supported.

Of course, if you don't interact with anyone else and use the
machine in stand-alone mode ....
