OS for the X1000
« on: August 04, 2011, 07:46:56 AM »
From the news post: http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=58688
 
Quote from: Transition;652928
The AmigaOne X1000 is not like other computers. It is the natural evolution of the Amiga's PowerPC lineage and is a culmination of efforts by real Amiga enthusiasts, developers and betatesters to create powerful, modern desktop hardware for the Amiga Operating System.

That's a pretty bold statement!
 

Realistically, they may clap their hands if this becomes more famous than Amiga OS 3.1/3.9 and the ClassicWB versions of it.
With the price tag of the X1000 being way over even of a good 4000/3000 PPC system, "real Amiga enthusiasts" will scratch their heads a few times, before buying this.

Does this really need its own thread? At least Aeon and Hyperion are actually doing something to help the Amiga community, what are you doing other than hoarding computers that other people could be using?

Agreed, if you dont like the X1000 and it statements no need to create new threads to bash it, bash it in it own thread :hammer: or how about just ignoring them. :) I for one think this is good news for AmigaOS4 fans, and I'm one of them.

Well I actually do read the little notice and the news posting is not for discussion.

What I do for the Amiga community ?
Helping people, that's my daily job also and trying to be friendly.

Well it's not bashing, but we haven't seen a single bit of proof of it.

He's probably just like you Cammy (with all your Amigas) and enjoys them so much... ;)

People do collect things you know and like to have the full set, so to speak. There are always plenty of Amigas for sale on eBay, so hoarding them is rather harsh and who's to say anyone would buy his if he did have them for sale... :)

I have 7 A1200's and use them all, as each has it's own different set up and uses... :)

Yep, and I actually enjoy tuning them, but it takes time, lots of time ;)

But while we are at it, how about this ?
 
Board is ready and your X1000 is ready to rock and roll, it has OS4.2 on it (that is what it seems to be getting on it) and it all runs fine.
You can internet on it, you can play audio on it, so your favorite mp3's and all things and it can even show your video's.
 
And then ?
 
It can't play modern pc games, or any other platform like Xbox or Playstation, other than Amiga Classic, it may be able to do the ported Quake and so on, but it won't play Call Of Duty or Need For Speed for example.
 
At most offices they use Word and Excell, so here comes an email with a word document, you may be able to read it if that exists on OS4.1, but can you also fully edit it ?
You get a PDF also, again it might be able to read it, but can you also edit it ?

@Buzzfuzz

The announcement is self praising but the actual product is still months away so I guess it is ok to let them have their 15 minutes.

Not everyone uses a computer for the same tasks. For example, I'm not interested in playing modern PC games on my Amiga (and if I would, I probably wouldn't find time for it). I occasionally (i.e. once every one-two months) play a single game under Windows, but that's all. Speaking in general, it's true that it won't fulfill the needs of the vast majority of the computer users, but it will make happy those that like it and find it useful.

BTW I edit Word and Excel documents using Abiword and Gnumeric. Regarding PDF, I have never tried before but I guess it supports PDFs as well.

Any contribution to the Amiga community that isn't intel is freaking awesome, and people continue to bash it.

I don't get the problem.  Everyday from dawn to dusk and beyond we get blasted with advertising hype, if everybody else in the world uses hype in their advertising why can't a-eon?

News about x1000 are usually boring, sometimes a picture of the board, sometimes just words, hyperion and aeon have the bad side of the amiga, the promises... ok, they make something for the amiga community but for some reason they are not very welcome by all amiga users.

Could dual-boot Debian and run it pretty nicely, if the specs on the A-Eon website are still up to date. That'll open up a lot more software options than OS4 presently has. (And yes, you can't run x86 Windows-binary games, but that's true of any non-x86 system. But you do have access to any of the many open-source games out there, and some mainstream game companies like iD Software even support Linux users.)
