Sorry Rose but your talking BS:

>Included with the motherboard will be a copy of Yellow Dog Linux.

Can't see the "only" here, and as this is a LinuxPPC-site it makes
absolute sense to not mention MorphOS.

On Thendics site you will find:

>Pegasos comes with Yellow Dog Linux and MorphOS.


Sorry, but I might agree with Kronos  :-o

Why should the Yellow Dog Linux website announce anything about "the other OS"?  :idea:

Penguinppc.org is a generic website for all Linux distros running on PPC boards.

The Yellow Dog site (Terrasoft) doesn't even seem to know Pegasos exists. Of course, it may just be insufficiently frequent updating.

Apparently they do have MorphOS, but it definitely isn't MorphOS 1.0 and this doesn't mean you can buy one (Pegasos/MorphOS) from KDH.

Thendic sure are confident.


So it sounds like Thendic is bending the truth? This is more confusing than an Amiga Inc announcement

Now those are really hard to beat !
And now I add a certain rumour to it and I'm totally of track.
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

No it isn't. It's maybe just what has been announced
for December. Limited board production for those
who can't wait ;) But better wait for the official
announcement.

Let me guess the end user board will be shipping and they will continue to ignore Hyperion?


It would be pointless to ship a board to Hyperion at the moment anyway.  bPlan have to first get a licence.

Therefore it's not worth Hyperion doing the work even if they did have a board, as they couldn't sell the OS.

Holy Crap! anyone been over to the Forum and News discussion, if you can call it that, on ANN.  I think I just found the volcanic pit that Anikin Skywalker falls in.

As long as MorphOS features AmigaOS compatibility, it cannot be rescued legally.

It's FUBAR legally.

That's what you get when you decompile an entire product and release the result on the internet.

BTW: we did order our developer board from bPlan late last year, early this year (I would need to check the fax I sent them).

Finally, there is no word about the CPU these boards are shipping with.

Is it a G3@600 Mhz? Or does the price of 550 euro exclude the price of the CPU?

Remember, the CPU is socketed so it could potentially be sold separately depending on how much somebody is willing to pay for it.

Am I the only one that this comment bothers:

"The minimum order is ten units at 550 Euros/unit."

Have none of you ever done any retail? The typical mark-up on any product is 100%, the minimum mark-up is ~75%.

550 * 1.75 = ~963

963 euros?!? I thought these things were supposed to be cheaper than the Amiga One, but it looks it's going to be quite a bit more expensive. :-? I'm not trying to start a flame war, but if that IS the price retailers are going to be paying, the end price is going to be quite prohibitive.
Tried it once, and you know, I don\\\'t like being on fire.

Yes, I have worked in retail electronics. Markup varies by product an at times maybe be negative. yes, take a loss on a product only to make it up on another.  Look at the printer industry. A $50 printer that comes with two cartridges is cheaper than buying the two cartridges. A $200 cellphone with out service plan maybe sold to you for $50 with a service plan.
I think in the computer industry the average is about 10% for systems and system components.
Oh, for you GameCube, Xbox, Playstation owners, the markup on your games is about %50. It ranges between %40 and 65% on new games depending on title. I'm amazed they don't give those systems away.
I thnk you'll probably see them being sold for about 600 Euros
