To all of you AmigaXL/Amithlon users
« on: November 13, 2002, 01:45:50 PM »
I'm doing an article on AmigaXL and Amitlhon for my website so I wonder if you people who runs it could answer some questions here, i'd me most happy.  :-D

What do you use it for? :) Give me some examples of programs you run, why you run them and the speed of your computers. Pro's and con's with the emulatoed enviroment vs the real amiga. :)

If you're doing a hands-on evaluation it would definitely be helpful to understand how the solution works, the system requirements and level of compatibility.

With all the glowing user feedback I keep wondering why Bernie hasn't been retained to help write the native x86 version of the OS. According to the powers that be this is only 12 months away.  :-D

What can you really do with Amithlon? What's the difference between Amithlon and Amiga XL? Is is true the native support of AHI? Can it be used for example as a workstation to run DigiBooster?.

I only borrowed someone else's systems during a convention to show ImageFX. at that time it worked great and made me wish I had one.

but AMithlon is no longer for sale and I'm looking into WinUae on a windows2000k/linux duel boot system.

when I get that running, i'll let you know how it goes.

I use it to impress people at school by running it on my laptop, dno't actually run anything on it tho.. no drivers for my wlan card that I'm aware of so it's pretty useless to me. But it does give me a lot of attention.

Sure AMITHLON is no longer for sale?

Power Computing (www.powerc.com) still has it in its products catalogue and I managed to buy AMITHLON/Amiga XL full package from them last summer. It's a failry expensive product but it's definitely worth the money.

Yeah, but as I understand it, no money has actually made it's way to Amiga or Amithlon's authors...  They are essentially selling pirated copies.  Hence dropping that much cash is essentially the same (or worse!) than pulling it pulling off your favorite free market we can't discuss here.  ;-)

Sure, Amithlon/XL's all cool and stuff, but what about OS 4/AmigaOne?

Are Amithlon/XL users gonna keep on using OS 3.9 when OS 4's available? Are developers gonna bother supporting OS 3.9 and/or Amithlon/XL for these people?

If you're seriously planning on using Amithlon/XL for the foreseeable future, then you can't possibly care about the Amiga's future.

@illwrath

AFAIK Bernie (and Harald for sure) did and does get his money, while
the whole situation between H&P and AInc is completly unclear.

And yes I do know Bill's statement, but I see no reason why I should
trust him more (or less) than Mr Haage on this subject.

Yes i plan to continue to run Amithlon for as long as need it, I would not touch the AmigaONE or the Pegasus with a barge pole so yes i do not care about amigas future, i care ONLY about my computing needs,

I remember the days when people used to buy amiga stuff because they wanted to not all this "We must buy something we dont want just to support amiga companies".

"Yeah, but as I understand it, no money has actually made it's way to Amiga or Amithlon's authors"

I know there have been some legal issues between H&P, AmigaInc etc. regarding copyrights on AMITHLON but when I bought it I wasn't yet aware of that and the reason why I bought it was that I really needed it, that is I needed to run all my AMIGA software on a faster machine and, apart from WinUAE that I also have, AMITHLON was what I really needed. I obviously regret the fact that my money has not gone to the right people, but this is not my problem. If I had been able to buy it from the authors I would have done that without exitation as I fully support copyrights and legal issues as a matter of facts. They should have sorted their problems out in the first place. And, more importantly, because I can't wait for their legal problems(issues being sorted out.

I'm 99.99999% sure that if Bernie would be allowed to continue
Amithlon in every way he wants and is capable off then it would
have far more future than AOS4 and MOS together.

But it should be clear by now, that this won't happen  :-x
