Has the XC compiler been ported over to HyperionOS or will tinkerers still have to use a windows/mac/linux machine to compile their binaries for "xena"?

Not sure Id have used "HyperionOS" as it makes it sound like an attack (whether it is or not I dont really care, far be it for me to tell you what to say or think), but that aside that's actually a pretty reasonable question. Seems crazy to have a novelty and not be able to use it properly from that machine.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

So, you'll be getting one of the CUSA Amigas then?



No, hopefully a Natami. :)

crazy

That word describes the whole deal pretty well I think.

PS. Excuse my selective quoting.

Oh, you do have a sense of humour after all! Franko would be proud! :)

Now, granted, this is the "limited edition" people.

So if it were an xbox game, knock off ten bucks and that will be the regular X1000 pricetag :D

Should be called "Collectors" Edition. Price is about right then. Sure the first re-sale will be around $3000-5000 dollars.

If you think retro is over-priced see how much a pair of "Limited" edition Nike Mag Trainers sell for. Cheap! and you won't take those out of the box (Devalues on first use).

Life!

Holy shιt, ~$2700 without OS, tax, or shipping? What, is it made of powdered unicorn genitals? Does it come with a side order of world peace?

They are always mentioning the price in UKP first, so I take it they will sell it from Great Britain? Well, EUR €1,950 + OS4 + Shipping/Handling + 20% British VAT on top of that, should make it land around the EUR €2,500 (just for reference: ~ $3,400) mark or beyond for European customers. Mind boggling!

:lol:

$2682.56..... plus shipping.... a fool and their money are easily parted. That's just a crazy price.

Even if I was a millionaire I wouldn't buy it. Prices like that are just going hinder the uptake of next gen Amiga's.

Says in the first post it does come with aos4.1 and a license for aos4.2

The First Contact system comprises a fully equipped AmigaOne X1000 complete with the official Boing Ball case and AmigaOS4.1 Update 5 pre-installed. It is also supplied with a license for AmigaOS4.2 which can be downloaded when it is released by Hyperion Entertainment.
