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.

But they don't get it ;-) - they only see MHZ and nothing else - i guarantee you they've never sat with an Amiga 1000 with 7 mhz, and screamed "my god its fast" like many of us did.

My most favorite gaming system has only half that MHz (the Super Nintendo). That doesn't mean that I want to edit photos and convert videos with it.

Actually, SNES had more like 3.5MHz 16-bit CPU... but point taken ;)

I don't knew any serious use of Super Nintendo, did you?

While the Amiga revolutioned the world of computing with just 7 MHz CPU.

It was a matter of facts.

If you are nostalgic of 3,5 MHz Super Nimbimbo then aim at your garage and search for the box in which you left your Nintendo getting dust.

I think they do. Some people like exotic platforms, some do not. KugelKurt just seems to be bored, or maybe his cat got hit by an Amiga computer, who knows ;)

I don't have a cat. Never had.
I'm bored and on top of that I had lots of fun making Commodore and Amiga jokes with friends when Escom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escom_%28computer_corp%29 owned the brands. I still have some shitty Commodore-branded CD tower somewhere!
