Amiga & AROS A few moments ago, a woman appeared at my doorstep with a package for me. Since it was about 19:30, I was a little perplexed - this isn't a very usual time to be delivering packages. Also, this was a woman who I've seen walking around town before - she's a local. She handed over the package, and when I saw the note on top, I was even more intrigued: "From Trevor Dickinson, A-EON Technology".

I would say it grows fine! The Amiga Community is strong and stubborn like hell...they refused to die a long time ago!

The AmigaOne X1000 and AmigaOS is a killer combination, and shows once again that THE AMIGA IS ALIVE AND KICKING!!

And don't forget the SAM machines covers the entry level hardware. So all in all we have many different hardware options, and a high level machine in the horizon, and a GREAT operating system AmigaOS 4.1

The Amiga situation is better than ever!


long live the Amiga!

>> So all in all we have many different hardware options
And this is a problem.
Amiga today (and in last 15 years) is a bunch of small groups of enthusiasts who doesn't care about the platform, but only targeted to theirs personal goals.
Instead of single future-proof hardware platform and single OS platform we have non-compatible, not future proof HW + 4 Amiga-flavour OSes.

The problem of X1000 is what it is designed as 80s platform. Put a custom XMOS chip on mobo and hope someone will find it useful. Feels so oldskool

When you cater to a community like Amiga users, putting geektastic custom chips on the mobo makes perfect sense because these are the very people who would get use out of it.

Actually, that's exactly what I like about it.

I think you missed the point...

I'm saying that if they got the remaining stock, possibly even a single run, that it's probably enough to meet demand.

If they made too many, it would actually hurt the future of the company!

That said, _I_ want one, but not to run Amiga OS, but there's a whole story behind that...
