News on the X1000!
« on: March 07, 2011, 05:36:47 PM »
(the original post is from amigaworld.net and not from me! but i think these news are also interesting for the users of amiga.org)

London, 7th March 2011

Penguins anyone?

As part of the  pre-qualification process Varisys have created a minimal PowerPC Linux  kernel to ensure that all components and subsystems are working as  expected on the revision 2 Nemo motherboard. Understandably, Linux  driver support is far more extensive and by creating a minimal Linux  system Varisys can demonstrate that the board they deliver to the  AmigaOS4 developers it fit for purpose. As an extension of this testing  process we have commissioned Varisys to create a desktop Linux port  complete with GUI. Although we realize that many Amigans will  exclusively run AmigaOS4 we thought that giving the AmigaOne X1000 a  working Linux option would add extra value and allow users to run  software and utilities that may not be currently available under  AmigaOS4.

"It don't matter if you're black or white"

We  have been working very closely with AmigaKit to produce "AmigaOne X1000"  and "Boing Ball" branded peripherals and merchandise to compliment the  excellent A1-X1000 tower case design created by Andrew Korn. In July  2010, AmigaKit began selling a matching black A1-X1000 PS/2 & USB  compatible "Boing Ball" keyboard and mouse. These peripherals can be  used with the SAM range as well as PC or Mac computers and are also  compatible with Classic Amigas by using Cocolino, Micromys, Subway USB  or Deneb USB devices. The original A1-X1000 design was based around a  black tower case but, after receiving many requests from customers, we  decided to also produce a white version with matching keyboard and mouse  combination. AmigaKit began stocking the white mouse at the end of 2010  and hope to be in a position to offer customers and Amiga resellers a  choice of the black or white "Boing Ball" tower case in the near future.

I can't help but to get a déjà vu feeling from all this: It sounds like AmigaOne SE all over again.

In fact there isn't much news about X1000 itself here at all. X1000 boards being delivered to the beta testers would be real news. Well there's still 3 weeks left of Q1.

Using a proven OS like Linux to test hardware is a good idea. But I wonder why this testing wasn't being done early last year, when the first Rev. 2 boards demo boards were produced?

Oh, wow. Now they've got a white case as well. And I was afraid we'd be stuck with the black one. Even long before getting a tiny glimpse of what should live inside that is.

Don't get me wrong: I'm wishing them the best of success with the X1000 but unfortunately I'm not near fanatic enough to shell out that much for a machine of that caliber. Just wishing there'd be more 'productive' news...

Linux otoh is good news - as it appears you get more options for maxing out the hardware (for its level that is). If there were Xen for PPC you'd even be able to run both OSes side-by-side.

"Remaining revision 2 boards will reach beta testers during Q2..." so thats anywhere between 25-86 days away. So if all goes to plan the Amiga X1000 will be available to buy May/June. Pg. 17 of AF.
