Amiga & AROS The Amiga changed the computer industry. It was based on a multitasking operating system, rivaled the graphics power of some workstations and was affordable enough for home users. Unfortunately, Commodore struggled to maintain Amiga's lead, and through a number of bizarre business decisions (refusing to license the Amiga design to Sun), went bankrupt. Read about the history of the Commodore Amiga at Low End Mac.

"This is an old Boxer machine as released in 2001 (Only ten machines available): "

Erm, hate to point this out, but the BoXeR never made it out of prototyping - there were endless revisions but it was never released. I can't understand why this is so hard for you to get into your skulls....

"Sure this new Samantha hardware it could have some points in common with Boxer. I still don't know... "

You really don't get it do you? Amazing. Ok, I'll spell it out for you:

There have been many people who created prototypes for their vision of the "next generation Amiga" that never got beyond that point. BoXeR was just one of the more clever ones.

"I strongly doubt that a BOO-BOO-XER motherboard was so advanced...

I doubt also it has USB ports, PCI, AGP... UHM...! "

.... It's not about hardware, it was never about hardware. It's about people announcing (sometimes with pictures, sometimes with non live shows of hardware) kit that never makes it to the production line.

I have to conclude at this point you are either retarded or...

"We amigans can wait.

We are trained in waiting, and from time to time new hardware came up and grants us lots of satisfactions over skeptical people and flamebaiters. "

... Nevermind, you answered for me.
