Amiga & AROS Yes, we are continuing our new-found fascination with the Amiga platform, by reporting to you straight from the floors of AmiWest and Pianeta Amiga. Chris Handley consolidated all the information from these two Amiga shows into one handy post, and the future of the AmigaOS looks bright indeed! Update: More planned features have emerged. Read on for the update.

"A PPC board that's still available (and I mean brand new, not through Ebay), X86, ARM, MIPS like the Loongson, whatever they wish but it needs to be current


Did you miss my extensive AmigAOS4/sam440ep review? You can buy the sam440ep from ACube - they've released like three models in various configurations already.

Quite current.
"

The Sam440 is not exactly a current machine, it's effectively a low spec embedded board, only much larger, more power hungry and slower than your typical embedded board...

It may well be "available", but it is low performance and ridiculously expensive. It would be trounced by a used powermac available at a fraction of the cost, and hasn't a hope against current x86 hardware available for similar cost. The G4 mac mini cost less than the sam440ep when it was new, and it was much quicker... These same machines are now considerably cheaper to buy used.
