Amiga & AROS So we finally meet! You can't imagine how hard I've tried to get my hands on a machine that could run AmigaOS 4 in all its glory. I've never used the Amiga before - not during its heydays, and not during its afterglow - so it meant an unexplored world for me. You can imagine my excitement when ACube Systems, makers of the sam440ep board that runs AmigaOS 4.1, offered a review machine to me, built around their own PowerPC sam440ep flex motherboard.

Sorry but your statement on this product is completely inaccurate. It appears you are making assumptions without actually doing any real investigation.

Compare the board layouts of the reference design and the product produced (yes, produced) by ACube.

A circuit board factory capable of producing motherboards costs a lot to keep running, you cannot do that with Amiga sales numbers. Normally companies like this hand over their CAD designs to such a factory that does the actual production.

Are you sure Acube have their own production facility?

Acube designing the board (maybe they receive reference CAD designs from AMCC and edit those) sounds plausible. Acube producing it themselves sounds unrealistic.
