Amiga & AROS At OSNews, we have kept you updated about the Amiga hardware announced by ACK controls. Supposedly ready for shipping in May, we are now in the second half of September, and still no hardware. Interestingly, nor ACK Controls, nor Amiga, Inc., will be present at the upcoming Amiga show Pianeta Amiga - leading to the inevitable conclusion that like so many other announcements in the Amiga world, this one was yet another big puff of air. All hope is not lost, though: ACube Systems has announced the SAM440ep, a PowerPC board, of which industrial versions are already available (according to ACube). The consumer version is supposedly ready to ship starting 22nd September 2007, and interestingly, Hyperion will be present at the ACube booth at Pianeta Amiga. Finally, new Amiga hardware? Seeing is believing, many will say.

What I still am looking for is probably some perverted open-source mixture of Haiku, Syllable and AROS. Lightweight free AmigaOS like modern multimedia OS!

As if such a thing will ever happen, the (FL)OSS camp is hevaily fragmented to say the the absolute minimum, just look at the Amiga community (of which two sides despise (FL)OSS), they'll rather have three different OSs with trippled efforts for development resulting in the same degree of advances.
