Amiga & AROS After days of wild speculation and ridiculously fast-growing threads on AmigaWorld.net, we finally know most of what we need to know about the new Amiga. This is not just a random PowerPC evaluation board that you can stuff in a generic case - no, this is an all-new system with a custom motherboard, and some very, very interesting innovations - like a fully customisable co-processor. Twenty-five years after the introduction of the first Amiga, this is one heck of a machine.

Ha, all the Apple half truths about PPC being so much better than intel bit them in the behind when they switched the Mac's processor and the intel machines at the same clock speed ran much, much, much faster....

Actually, it didn't come back to haunt them at all: Apple switched the line over to "now our machines will be cheaper and faster", and the Apple fans pretty much bought it without a second thought.

I think, if Apple started claiming that chewing broken glass had restorative properties (It cures ailments of the foot! Try it!), then probably about half of current Mac users would at least try it.
