Amiga & AROS Ah, the AmigaOne x1000 - now that the summer is approaching, the powerful next-generation Amiga machine is getting ever closer to being officially unveiled and launched. The hardware is being developed by A-EON Technology, who formed a strategic partnership with Hyperion Entertainment, the company behind AmigaOS 4.x, with the "express purpose of developing new hardware for AmigaOS 4 and beyond". Obligement has a long and detailed interview up with Trevor Dickinson, long-time Amiga enthusiast and collector, and one of the prime forces behind A-EON.

25 years ago, Amigas were 'state of the art'. The new Amigas are essentially average PCs. Why should we, the consumers be interested in the new Amigas?


Oh, I don't know... no Windows virii, trojan horses, etc. No DRM, No "Genuine Advantage" crap.
No Linux Dependencies garbage.

Everything in Amiga is at least a decade behind the times, even their memes. ;-)

As long as Amiga in its age was already beyond its times, seems that other systems got 25 years to reach the Amiga. What a slooow progress in human history waiting other systems reach in 2010 what Amiga was in 1985.

Lol! :-D

Now this is a low blow. It's easy to have no dependency problems when you have a small number of well known platforms to target and those platforms move not at all (or at a glacial pace).

Linux would be the same way if there weren't so much of it with so many people working on it.
