Of course, until then, they haven't.


I reckon $299 for the A1-Lite with OS4 thrown in free would be a decent starting point, and low enough to attract some of the people outside the current community who would like to see what its about but not at a cost of over a grand for the system.

For the current price of the A1XE I can buy a Pegasos, a PC, and still have change left over for a few pints down the pub, £1 for the fruit machine, and pie and chips to eat on the way home.

I don't think of this as a troll. But a bit of clever reverse psychology.

poster "Whoa is us, our community is doomed"
others (prone to arguement, like me) "What, you are an idiot, look at all the good things going on..." Which of course, is the point.

If the parents could get along, the users could get along. Sibling rivalry can be a good thing.

That's too clever for me.

I'm not saying 'Woe is us', I'm  saying new solutions will spawn new communities with their own objectives and support networks, just as the classic Amiga did in its day
