Amiga & AROS The Amiga changed the computer industry. It was based on a multitasking operating system, rivaled the graphics power of some workstations and was affordable enough for home users. Unfortunately, Commodore struggled to maintain Amiga's lead, and through a number of bizarre business decisions (refusing to license the Amiga design to Sun), went bankrupt.

One word: BoXeR

This is an old Boxer machine as released in 2001 (Only ten machines available):

Sure this new Samantha hardware it could have some points in common with Boxer. I still don't know...

But remember that in 2001 it not existed yet RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) european law.

This is a clue for you about new Amiga PPC:

UHM! RoHS complaint. This new hardware it could be sold worldwide and it will not causes pollution. A must for new market of computers!

I strongly doubt that a BOO-BOO-XER motherboard was so advanced...

I doubt also it has USB ports, PCI, AGP... UHM...!

Untill it is available for purchase, I'll not be making any plans for an apology.

We amigans can wait.

We are trained in waiting, and from time to time new hardware came up and grants us lots of satisfactions over skeptical people and flamebaiters.
