Your right and I don't care that it dosn't. AROS is fine for me.

Yes, you have made that quite clear.  No need to state it again.

For anyone who wants to use OS4 though, your $50 PC is useless.  FACT.

LMAO, that's a fair comment. Maybe it is due to debugging, I'm sure time will tell, serial debugging is enabled on the video.
It's a shame more people don't shout at Microsoft about boot times.

Microsoft have consistently improved boot times with XP, Vista & 7.
With so much software available that wants to run at startup, they get quite a bad reputation. Windows isn't AmigaOS quick, but it's pretty close coming out of hibernate to turning my a1200 on from scratch. I don't reboot windows that often, so the time is largely irrelevant.
 
Windows 8 looks pretty good, although I guess it hasn't had much software installed on it yet.

Amen! As much as I will never buy one over £500 myself I applaud their efforts. It's either new stuff like this or fake Amigas AKA x86 PCs + Amiga stickers slapped on them.

When finished and debugged on CPU grunt it will flatten little used Apple machines or SAM.

Progress for new more powerful OS4 compatible hardware is painful, this is not DELL or Microsoft R&D budgets.

When finished it could technically have Battlefield 2 conversion running @ 1080p in theory.......something no other OS4/MOS machine today can do.

As a big fan of MorphOS2.x and someone who constantly watches the progress of OS4, I look forward to seeing actual test results of OS4 on the X1000 which will prove (or fail to prove) your assertion that it will "flatten little used Apple machines".

If it succeeds in proving your assertion, I will applaud Trevor and his monumental achievement for creating something that runs OS4 faster than currently supported G4 Mac hardware can run MorphOS2.x.  If it fails to meet your expectations, but still gets released for sale to the public, and not only to a handful of beta testers, I will still applaud Trevor for his efforts to fulfill his personal dream.

My suggestion is to not get your expectations too high for the X1000, so you won't be disappointed if it fails to meet all of those expectations, and only ends up being the best available option to run OS4 at the time it is released.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

Yeah, that's part of it. My XP netbook is pretty quick to boot to be honest but my Vista machine (a 4800X2) is a bit of a slug, I should spend some time trimming out the startup I guess. I would use hibernate more as it's far quicker but I live in a place that suffers way too much power fluctuation from the grid to make hibernation reliable, safer to shutdown. :(

My fault for living out in the sticks. I'll take a look at the Windows 8 link in a mo and see how it's shaping up.

Dave you are right here. The thing to remember is it doesnt matter how fast the cpu or board is on a white paper.. it comes down to development and drivers. X1000 is a long way off from crushing Morphos 2.x on a PMAC

Very true, but I wasn't trying to make a point about technical superiority, just that the industry can take surprising turns with little warning every now and again. That's as true from the business end of things as it is from the technical end. (Remember, the only reason the Playstation came into existence was because Nintendo screwed over Sony on a CD-based SNES addon project. And look where that's gone.)

OS4 on X1000 crushing or not crushing MorphOS on whatever is about as relevant as mini morris crushing or not crushing a 2CV. OMG, a car analogy, oh no!
My point is, both systems have much more important shortcomings that should be dealt with.

It says the Video is private. Guess I won't watch it then?

News from TrevorDick of A-Eon

Chris Follett, AmigaKit's lead technician, has produced a quick video of the AmigaOne X1000 booting to AmigaOS4.1 Update 3. Chris apologized for the quality, but he only had time to run off a quick video in between setting up and testing Nemo 2.1 motherboards. He has promised to produce another video showing AmigaOS4 running various demos when he has more time.

At $3000, it never will. As simple as that.

First they disabled comments when people happened to mention it was slow. I guess they realized that releasing a video that emphasized how slow the X1000 is wasn't casting it in the best light, but still trying to hide it now is pretty pointless. But then that is the Hyperion & Co. way, to hide things.
