Peg II Discontinued - No further development
« on: November 05, 2006, 07:21:55 PM »
The PegasosPPC will be on sale this week for $399. Neither the board nor an upgrade card will be produced again by Genesi or bplan. It is the end of an era for us. It has been a great experience.

That's a real shame. Let's hope somebody pulls an OS4 capable board out of their arse to take its place.

So what does this mean for the future of MorphOS?

That depends on future decisions of the Morphos-Team alone. Will they support any other PPC-hardware or not?
At present, Morphos is in a similar situation as OS4: No new hardware it runs on.

Might have to pick one up for that price.
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

There wont be any new users that way.. No port, means the death of MorphOS eventually.

@Tomas

I merely pointed out that Pegasos I / II support isn't going to stop (which seems to be the misconception aswell, apparently some seem to link "No further development" to MorphOS).

I did not rule out MorphOS release for new platforms (but I won't be speculating about the possible platforms either).

Let's hope the lack of a future remains that way. :evil:

No, let's hope that support for MorphOS continues and that someday the programmers for it and AmigaOS 4.0 come back together to work on future Amiga OSes and/or programs.  We need good, new hardware, or a combined effort to port to top of the line current hardware.  And that takes lots of talented people working together, not petty bickering and dwelling on past differences.

Let's go forward, not re-live the past.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)
