I don't understand why most of you are so upset about this new computer. It seems everyone has their own opinion about what Amiga is and what new Amiga should be.
Just use some other Amiga computer thing and enjoy it.
Better sorry than worry.

Couldn't agree more with the OP. Sticking peecee mobos in custom cases doesn't make an Amiga.

The following article was submitted to us by an Amiga.org member that wishes to reman anonymous. She is a long time Amiga artist and lurker on this site but rarely posts. She has owned Amiga's over many years going back to the Amiga 1000 she purchased in 1985. She is upset about the recent turn of events and wanted to express her opinion on this site and asked us to share it. She also gave us one rule, her identity must remain private. We will publish her article and honor her one wish.


Gee, well Cammy is too young to be this person, so that means a certain MorphOS user wrote this. :)

>I don't understand CPU's, GPU's and other computer gibberish

She has been using an Amiga for 27 years and still doesn't understand CPUs? No wonder they say women know nothing about computers :-(

Do you know who Ada Lovelace is? Just read the first paragraph of the Wikipedia entry about her and you can see how damn stupid you just made yourself look...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ada_Lovelace

..and just for the record one of the best 3D artists I ever had the pleasure of working with was a total noob when it came to hardware. He was not a woman, just a damn good artist with no interest in computing beyond the apps he used.

Or it could be just a figment of this site's management imagination to boost activity here.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

@MissAnonymous

Hear, hear... This CUSA outfit is nothing more than a glorified sticker / re-branding company, which is totally bereft of the creativity, talent, commitment found throughout this community past and present.

Their "products" are about as innovative as the re-branded Tablet tat available from Amiga, Inc. They should really look back at the Commode Gaming's ill-fated endeavors, and realize once the novelty quickly wears off *and it will*, nobody in their right mind will pay a premium prices for hardware that is readily available elsewhere for much cheaper, simply for the privilege of a couple of stickers and a glossy desktop theme.

I have nothing but respect and admiration for all those talented people, actively developing in the Amiga spirit, may it be for AmigaOS, MorphOS, Aros and others.
The endeavors of CUSA pale in comparison, all they seem to want is invest the absolute minimum effort in order to extract the quickest buck.
