Amiga & AROS

Many were waiting for the day when new and strong Amiga(One) will appear. That happened now. Currently, the X5000 can be purchased with the dual-core processor. In the future, a more powerful machine will be available. Is it worth buying the current model or wait for a four-core version?

A look at the new X5000. Note that the author is Polish (I think), and English isn't her or his first language.

I loved the amiga as a platform and used it longer than was probably sane! (went to pc at 166mmx).

However after commodore all that has occured is the milking of the few left.

If anyone cared about the OS they would have gone to ARM or X64. But they fear piracy and cheap hardware. They know the remaining few will pay though the nose.

I kind of wish I had gone 2nd Gen acorn back then. The Raspberry Pi is now the way forward on risc os. And that is cheap and the sane.

Ahh well, I have my memories.
