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.

Amiga DIED (somewhat) because COMMODORE LET IT DIE due to crap management. The Amiga community has kept the platform somewhat alive to THIS DAY, because they loved what it was and could be.

Time however killed it as a mainstream platform, I admit that, and what is left is trying to claw back a little of what we had and what is still not filled by other platforms.

Retro computing is one niche ..

And everybody should be happy to get alternatives to MS and Apple et al..
