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.

They're killing the memory of Amiga whilst claiming to resurrect it.

Ironi mode on:
Yes they are really trying hard to kill the Amiga, by making a system that's 10000 faster than the original machines. They have also converted the original AmigaOS to the PowerPC platform, just so they could kill it even more efficiently. And now they have 4-5 different MB's to run this blazingly fast dead OS on, and oh the new MB will be able to control robots, lights, etc....sure it's dead!
Ironi mode off:

No it's people who keep repeating the amiga is dead, that's harming it most! - because the people who are working on bringing amiga back to modern times, would never ever think like that. If they did, they might as well give up right now!

Do you want them to give up??

Does the Amiga DESERVE they give up now?

Should the Amiga be allowed to survive, after 16 years of suffering in the hands of bad management??

I say YEAH HELL YEEEAHHHH...if there's any system out there who deserves a break it's the Amiga system, and as it seems right now, it has no intentions of giving it never had by the way hoho

So come on guys give it a break, and let live what was not ready to die.

I think "irony" does not mean what you want it to mean. Try "sarcasm" instead.
