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.

I am getting real !

Amiga for me is not in competition with PCs Macs.
But an alternative without MS inside, a hobbyist niche targeted platform. We'd be poor if we only had these high profile platforms like PC and MAC. And Linux as Raffaele says is a monolithic system as well.

And X1000 gives us a higher-end home for the OS4 and beyond. We've had to settle for A LOT less for all these years since Commodore failed.

If only this X1000 platform and XMOS could mean better CLASSIC chipset emulation .. :-) A new "Amiga" isnt perfect before it has perfect integration of the good old apps and games for me ....
