Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

According to the article, 1500 pounds and you can have one.

Would come cheaper to buy common x86 HW and program OS yourself. But some nutcases are willing to pay 100 dollars for tap water bottle so nothing new to feel "special".

I would certainly pay extra for something that's not x86. Being an assembly programmer, x86 asm makes me cringe just thinking about it.

How so? What is exactly so bad about x86 assembler?
