Does anyone here still believe A-eon will deliver the X1000 in 10 days from now?

But don't worry. After "summer 2010" and "late 2010", there is always "early 2011". :)

I dunno, I stopped paying attention after I heard the two-grand figure :/ I could put together like four nice PCs for that kind of money.

Ha, Ha U mean you don't know......where have you been !

U've missed the boat pal !

I wouldn't trust the word of anyone including me.

Everyone on the forum is subject to an NDA and we are not allowed to discuss it ! Whoops ah...hope I didn't say anything.

Hush Hush say no more, a nod is as good as a wink to a blind man.

U woke the thread up now.  :( bad form !
was Enterprise Vault (Its an Exchange Fail!), now its EMC Avamar, Dedupe for mostly everything including brain cells.

If you add a little extra money you might even get this: http://twitpic.com/3fojno

It´s a steal, ain´t it? But that´s what collectors are willing to pay.

Regarding the X1000: the production machines will arrive sometime next year and AFAIK the betatesters will get their boards soon - if all goes well. But as we know from a lemma to Murphys Law - everything takes longer than expected.

I am still excited about the machine. If I could preoder one today ... well, I´d be tempted.

Oh man! That cracked me up!. That's like some 1989 style ranting right there!

Since we are at it, are there any chances this machine will revive the interest for AmigaOS? Now, in order to get an Amiga, you have to buy the board and hook everything together by yourself. This has turned off a lot of people, i think.

I am puzzled by the fact that there are so many great OSes out there like Haiku and AmigaOS for home computer usage, yet most users are stuck with the CP/M Fileloader (Windows) and the AT&T line printer manager (Unix/Linux).

Most of the software people use today is open source stuff (VLC/Mozilla/MediaPortal/TSmuxer) so I am really surprised the authors tolerate with X-windows and Window's uber secret API, yet they won't even bother to port for Haiku and AmigaOS to raise interest. So sad...

See, I kind of thought the idea with open source is that people who want a program can contribute their own time and effort to making it happen. I mean, there's nothing stopping anybody from porting Mozilla to the Amiga (besides the fact that there's no way in hell any of the newer versions would run acceptably on any Amiga that isn't just an x86 PC running AROS with a boing-ball sticker slapped on.)

Oh, and a funny side story. There is an "official" statement as to which CPU is used in the X1000: http://www.osnews.com/story/24151/A-EON_Reveals_AmigaOne_X1000_Processor_Through_Cake

Yes, as revealed in other threads over the past few months, a number of users have indicated that they plan to buy.
