RE: Where's the hardware?

Jim,

AmigaOS4 has little to do with Genesi's future vitality one way or another. The roadmap we've been working from is NOT designed around a miniscule (yet still familiar) market that is unlikely to expand much - thus the Genesi interest and support for multiple OSes, OEM-driven projects, industrial and embedded markets, content communities, etc.

I realize not all of this has been mentioned in this thread, but in "amiga community" forums Genesi has had an open dialog about this roadmap for many months.

Also note that Pegasos resellers are ready and willing to provide complete systems and offer advice for components - as are current users and developers. As I finish with the last of my current Phoenix developer-seeding offers that put hardware into the hands of those who wish to make things happen, I am preparing to sell 100 Pegasos I boards (that have been traded in by developers and users toward Pegasos II boards) for 99 Euros.

I've already got quite a list of developers who are going to take advantage of the hardware soon-to-be available, and the support that comes with it. In some cases I will be recommending free systems to developers who wish to do major projects.
