if Eyetech sell it, then it will definitely be overpriced - their prices lists speak for themselves.


yeah, i know what u mean - i just dont get that - how can you possible justify charging such a high premium for bog standard pc components? i mean, a 80GB hdd for 100GBP?! that is a serious serious joke. i can pick up a nice maxtor 160GB hdd from ebuyer.com for a little over 50pounds plus vat

Pagestream and ImageFX are definately being done for A1, those plus Papyrus Office for MOS too (these three plus basic Internet is what I need to replace my PC).  It looks like any of the big (for Amiga) players are doing OS4 and MOS versions of stuff so far, and will see what sells more to decide future development.

The Peg comes with Linux and MOL chucked in too, though that doesn't really matter to me personally.  From what people have said the Peg is very good with Linux, and runs about a half-dozen different flavours without problems.

With OS4 yet to be finished it's too early to tell which will be the best rounded system, I'll just be going to Peg as it's got/getting everything I want (which isn't much ;-)).

Although the thought of AmigaOS 4 running on a Pegasos hardware sounds
more reliable.

I agree.
But I heard that MorphOS will run on a Mac.
I really want this to happen. I get a future of Amiga development/software on my primary computer. Excellent.

Keep up the good work Genesi, and may Eyetech and Hyperion be ashamed for no market presence whatsoever.
I'm not biased either - If I was into this big divide I would certianly be in the red camp.
But its nothing to do  with it, its just fact.
Genesi are doing a much better job.

Yeah, but I doubt it could utilize Mac hardware in full.

It is definently worth buying a pegy. Why not DO SO TODAY ;-)

Just imagine how an AmigaOS type OS would absolutely zoom along with 1GHz. Heck, it fly's on my G3@600

Imagine the applications you will be running.

Think about running some of your favorite apps on that thing.


Now ... go out and buy one of those beasts!!
