This debate about different operating systems is pointless. Genesi is only producing 500 MoB for the 15 of
October release date (to be followed by a 1st commercial production run of 5000 at some unspecified date in
the future). Without being able to purchase the PegaSoS, Genesi can claim to run Windoze & Mac OsX as well;
who is there to dispute them when there is no hardware available to verify their claims?
That being said, I would like to purchase a PegaSoS as soon as possible, since it doesn't appear likely that
Hyperion will release AmigaOS 4.0 any time soon (otherwise I might be tempted to get an AmigaOne -- which
by the way, can be found in a complete system at Software Hut). Do you hear me Genesi? The clock is ticking on your opportunity to make some money because I'm certain that there are more Amiga users that feel as I do.
Once AmigaOS 4.0 is released, your window to the market is going to start closing! Genesi has published a list of compatible
hardware, but there are several omissions that would make it difficult for even an Electronics Engineer such as
myself to build their own system; for example: what specific power supply model would they recommend to
hook up to their product? Keyboard? mouse? Everything that they did publish is of course good to know, but
a little (inadequate) knowledge is a dangerous thing. Let's leave the debate about which OS is best for the
PegaSOS until such time as complete systems are available, & in adequate numbers so that everyone that wants
one can buy one (I'm willing to assume more debt, so price is not an issue here).
