@HyperionMP

To put it frankly.. Great plans are nice to have but you need  a *real* and sellable product to make it work out.

Ah, Reminding me of..  Could you confirm us that you are attending to CeBit and please give booth info so you can be found there.. ( it's a *** big show).   :-D

(in a very low key tone, mountain_myst begins to think to himself)

boy, I wished these pegasos people would all shut up.

I am so sick of hearing about morph this and morph that.

Who's mind are they trying to change anyway.
Just because they've been fooled into a bunch of hype, don't mean I'm going to be sucked in with them.

don't they know the freakin' thing hasn't even got a tcp/ip stack?
don't they know that the installer doesn't even work right on it.
I'm sure they know about all the crashes and horrible bugs in it.

well, they can't even use real code (so they say). they have to use a bunch of emulation code to reproduce the real thing which leads to a bunch of bloat and spaghetti coding.

while on the other hand, Hyperion has rights to the real code and can change it as they will.
this cuts down on the size of the code and makes it much faster and cleaner.
and they say that os4 has limitations.
heh.
wow, these people are strange....

so they make big deals with big companies, and say it's the biggest thing since coca cola.

man, i'm sick of hearing about all the big deals with all the big companies that lead to absolutely no where.

hmmm....

huh? ....

What?....

Oh, I was just talking to myself.
I didn't realize anyone was listening.

I'll try to not think so loud next time....

sorry.    :-o

@Mountain_Myst

And who was it who brought MOS into this thread ?

About your techno-babble  :roflmao:
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Ummmm, I think he posted to the wrong thread, LOL!

But since he brought it up, seeing the Pegasos being offered for $299 instead of $499 or $800 sure is enough to make one stop and reconcider....Now, can they offer that price to everyone eventually??

Now, to get back on topic.... the AmigaOne XE.

Can Eyetech compete with this offer?  Even Amiga coupon holders are not getting that nice of a deal (the $299 thing).

It was in reference to what JoannaK had said.
Of course we have to spell all these things out to  the Mos people I guess.

You see...

Then she had some sort of smiley face after that.
:-D

That little statement there was really saying...

Hey Hyperion...
Are you gonna be at the show with OS4?
Because we are!

Nana boo boo

I would expect more out of a man with your education.

But maybe, you just looked past it.    ;-)

Oh yeah...
and about your funny clown avatar.
hahahahhaha!!!!!

(mountain_myst sticks his tongue out at the clown)

oh btw...

Some are waiting, some are not. It's all matter of personal preferences and needs. Personally I no longer consider OS4 to one of those major interests of mine. It may well be something someday, but at the moment it's yet another neat (but unproven) idea


Just another one of you Mos people hangin' round preaching the Gospel of "THE GREAT MORPHOS".

If you need anymore imformation that maybe you can't comprehend, feel free to ask me.
I'll be hangin' round.

Well, I'm not a MOS people, but I missed that little *** and it didn't even sink in what she was excluding.  However, if Amiga don't make this show and bring something to the table at last for people to see, they are going to loose alot of supporters.  

There was no need for Bill M. to say they would be there if they are not or cannot follow through with a product.  And while I've bucked (no pun intended) for Amiga/Hyperion and Eyetech for along time now, I cannot overlook the progress Genesi seems to be displaying on nearly a daily basis.  That says alot Mountain_Myst.  

Genesi are doing all the right things for their product and their customer base.  We who are waiting on Amiga should be so lucky.  Maybe Amiga will surprise us, but I'm not having a good feeling about the Cebit thing.  It needs to be answered by Amiga.  They said they would be there with product, but their name doesn't even appear on the list of exhibitors.  I don't think they should have to put out every little rumor that comes along, but this one needs to be addressed soon.

Yeah, I can understand the frustration.
But I really don't see it as a big thing if Amiga Inc. doesn't make the show.

It'll come when it comes. (if it does)

I used to follow Amiga Inc. everywhere they went and preach OS4, but I don't anymore.

If OS4 does comes out, I really feel that It will be the binding tie for the new Amiga future.
But if it doesn't, I reckon it's time for me to move on to windows 2k and never look back.

I'm not impressed with the Genesi side of things, because it's the same thing it's always been.
I have nothing against Germany or that side of the world, but I really cannot stand for the way they do buisness.

I am sick of over priced 3rd party hardware with buggy drivers.
I could go on and on here, but I'm not.
I figure as soon as Genesi gets thier foot in the door, that's when thier true colors will show.
Been there and done that.

The whole Amiga Inc. picture, with the dongle and all, for the first time in years has me hoping for something fresh and new.
Something that programmers can actually make money on.
I could go on and on here, but I won't.

But anyway....

If OS4 comes out, I think it will surely be worth the wait.
As far as MorpOS.

Been there and done that.

I understand that too.  That is why I want to see what comes out of the OS4 team before making any commitment.  I've already got a PC, and Mac, (+A3000 too) and to be honest, it would be nice to move back to an Amiga environment for my main system.  I've made a commitment in my mind to  wait and see for both systems.  Although, my tendencies are toward A1+OS4, I'm _trying_ to keep a more open mind now.  That gets easier every day that goes by.

Heh...

I hear ya   :-)

Well, off to newegg.com for a while.
I'm in the middle of building a killer pc with windows2k.

The money that I was gonna spend on OS4.

But anyway...
Maybe I'll catch them later on.

Wished they could have had it out by the time my income taxes came in though.  :-P

You seem to take this so personal.. Why?  :-?

And for your info... I have so far nothing invested to MOS/Pegasos. Genesi has promicing system  but I have not yet purchased one. I may well do so soon, cause that price is *SO* good that it's quite hard to wait these 'official alternativies' much longer.  

And waited I have.. Like many others, given them my money and my support to this company called AmigaInc. But as I have seen they can'd give anything back (except delays, excuses and lies) I don't belive they have much to give anymore.

I don't gospel about MOS greatness, if you really can't see that much you are truly blinded by your hate to other people... I have no daydreams of world domination nor 'heroic saving of community' like some people seem to have. It's nothing I'm after.. My interest is much simpler, I'm looking around system I can use. And if AmigaInc (or associates) can't deliver, I think I'm entitled to look for alternativies.

That's amazing. He's still pushing the comparison between the crippled AMD Duron 1200 to the G4/800 as a good thing... Apples and Oranges.


yep agree atleast they should have used a athlon/pIII which is real CPUs... since duron is supposed to be a stripped down  low cost model while g4 is supposed to be high cost model...
