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.

Just compare the Pegasos to the AmigaOne. Everyone who bought the latter must have been utterly retarded.

How could people know the first AmigaOnes from Eyetech would be so bugged ? And that Amiga Inc would fail them !? Besides the failing chips was as far as I know due to a flawed reference board from some Asian manufacturerer (?) Luckily I didnt buy any of them .. I hope Trevor Dickinson is more lucky with his hardware partner, (who seems to be A LOT more reliable .. )

Bugged and bugged.

MorphOS was already there. The hardware to.
The Pegasos wouldn't get AmigaOS, just that, just let the alternative die so we don't end up with two branches.
The Pegasos was cheaper.
B-plan/Genesi was infinity + 1 better than any company which have ever owned Amiga, don't know about the Amiga Tech people though, we lost them fast .. ;D. Eyetech may have been good people, what do I know, way to much hardware and high prices anyway, and still same shitty old Amiga-whatever-company behind it all.

Pegasos + MorphOS was good, sure the A\Box or whatever might had ended up better, or the maybe the AmigaMMC + QNX Neutrino based OS. But to base a new one on Linux or keep on updating the same old piece of shit (AmigaOS 3.5 and 3.9 are jokes to, though I haven't used them.)

Sad for Genesi to not get it flying even higher.
