After about six years of waiting for A1222, I got Sam460le so the same as this topic started with A1222 it ends with Sam460le, as something that actually exists and fullfil my dream of having AmigaOS. 4.1 hardware.

I'm glad for you! But now they're unavailable again and there's very little to talk about until ethernet controllers arrive after Chinese New Year for the Sam or a hidden stash of micro-controllers is found for around a $6 price point for the A1222 Plus! In the meantime there's everything else in the Amiga sphere (mainly 68k or Arm/FPGA based emulation machines/accelerators) that is available to actually buy or at least backorder!

However, we should all forgive those new Sam460LE owners (including yourself) actually sharing about the excitement of receiving an AmigaOne machine, despite the odds against it happening, within a couple of months of ACube estimating their arrival! A not-quite-Christmas miracle!  8)

It feels like the P.A. Semi debacle all over again! They had to beg, steal and borrow to get enough PA6T-1682M CPUs for the X1000

At least they got a hundreds of X1000 boards and systems to customers before it became unsustainable. 

After hearing at Amiga37 that Jobs offered them 1700 PA6T chips if they paid up front, I think that was a real missed opportunity.  Same with them them not getting a whole run of the original Tabor at £300 a board and keeping them in storage until the OS was ready.

If the A1222 Plus had been delivered in a timely manner I don't think ACube would have stepped in with the Sam460LE!

Shame that Sam460 in some form hasn't been available the whole time.

I am pretty sure they could have sold all Tabor boards even without AmigaOS just with Linux instead, if they had produced several hundred.
