A very nicely written article. :-)

I agree with Elwood that it may have been better to state AmigaOS3.x here. AmigaOS4 includes most of MOS's improvements over OS3.x as well, of course both MorphOS and AmigaOS4 each have their own additional plusses, minusses and differences in implementation.

Amont Informatique has now some new ľA1-Cs (Mini-ITX) boards ready to be sent to dealers. News on CPU upgrades is sheduled for this week and companies are working on alternative hardware.
The few AmigaOnes found aren't new. They're reconditioned AmigaOnes. They're being restored to a good condition (also known as refurbished.)

Well, AFAIK these boards haven't been sold through Amiga dealers before. The mentioned boards were "resting" awaiting the required CPU modules or so I was told.

I believe this batch to be multiple times larger than what was made available at Pianeta Amiga last year (September 2005). But still only double digit figures like the batch back then though. So I guess they will be sold out again in no time, just like was the case back then... Hopefully some good 3rd party developers get the oppertunity to buy them, in anticipation of alternative options.
BTW, I plan to attend Pianeta Amiga in September for the first time myself this year. Looks like some interesting stuff is... :-)
