Amiga & AROS Boys and girls, it's time to dust off your Pegasos II machine, or maybe to reduce the size of your MorphOS partition, because there's a new contender coming your way: ACube Systems Srl has announced the immediate availability of AmigaOS 4.1 for the Pegasos II. It's 01:40 here, so I can't check if the sky is falling, but I'm pretty sure it is.

Amiga have NEVER DIED!

Because you and millions of others THINK that Amiga is dead doesn't mean it IS. It's alive and kicking. New software updates comes all the time for both AmigaOS4.1 and MorphOS. The classic AmigaOS is also still supported by software developers!

Commodore died YES!.. But Amigascene never died. That's why we have a PPC platform now which Commodore never entered. The USERS of this system have told the WORLD that Amiga IS NOT DEAD.

Amiga systems is the best out there. Just buy an Amiga and see for yourself why. YOU won't understand it before you've tried it.

So stop commenting that AMIGA IS DEAD, because it's NOT! Maybe your spirits, souls have taken Amiga farewell, but in reality AMIGA IS ALIVE! Now more than ever! Just check out www.aminet.net! New software and updates comes almost daily. www.amigaworld.net, www.amiga.org, www.amiganews.de reports daily news from the Amiga Development and Happenings!

So, my conclusion is. Rather than trying to imagine that AMIGA IS DEAD, turn your heads 720 degrees around and face whats the face. AMIGA IS STILL ALIVE.

Regards,
Mike

After a 720 degree turn I would still be facing the same way.

Actually, after turning your head 720 degrees, you'd probably be facing the pearly gates...

Tss, I'm still among one of the last which used it, and I haven't used it in years.

Sure there may come some products but how many developers are there on Amiga now vs then? And with no new hardware or software (AmigaOS 4 doesn't count, it's still a fail and won't get new users) how's that likely to improve?

Sure if someone gave me an A4000 with Cyberstorm and graphics card I'd probably use it but it's not like I'll go out and buy such a machine.

The Amiga is indeed dead for all us who have left, which is what? 99.9%? I would assume many of the people who claim it's not dead don't even use it themself.

The AmigaPPC platform is more or less dead since 10 years ago to ..

I don't need to buy an Amiga, I have an Amiga 500+ and my Amiga 1200 with 68030@50MHz, 8 MB fastmem and 1.7 GB HDD, and also took my friends Amiga 1200 with same turbocard because he was going to trash it when he got his new girlfriend.

But I don't even have an ethernetcard for it, if I had I would probably had used it for IRC 3-8 years ago but I'm not around at IRC longer either.

Kind of everyone KNOW Amiga is dead, it's more useless to stop saying it's not ...

"AMIGA IS ALIVE! Now more than ever"

lol, yeah! Compare amiga demo scene 88-95 with current? Or what? ;)

Regarding your news sites, even the best one, ann.lu, gave up.. Says enough don't it?
