Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

Amiga X1000 won't do any difference whatsoever.

A new geek platform with a new geek OS for cheap and with steadily progress may have had a future, but there's so many platforms available for doing that already, such as any phone for instance ..

ECS didn't added much, look at this instead:

Then came AGA and updated things a bit, but your PCs graphics cards where still better, the Amiga 1200 got 2 MB RAM but kept the same audio. Look at this instead:

I assume Jay Miner & co could have kept it going. Commodore not so much ..
