No, first we have to be very anxious awaiting great answers (even we know answer is ... 42?)

i am not satisfied the questions were genuinely answered to the best of Barrys abilities 12.50%
the answers were not insightful and my opinion of CUSA and Barry have worsened 25.00%
my question was not answered which i find suspicious...  8.33%
overall a waste of time  33.33%
----------------
Seems like it wasn`t overally a good PR move ...

I already figured Barry was only in it for the money, doesn't actually give a fig about Commodore or the Amiga except as brand names that got famous for a while and might still be exploitable, and is derisive of anybody who feels differently. The interview didn't give any new information, but it did at least provide public confirmation for those suspicions.
Computers: Amiga 1200, DEC VAXStation 4000/60, DEC MicroPDP-11/73
Synthesizers: Roland JX-10/MT-32/D-10, Oberheim Matrix-6, Yamaha DX7/FB-01, Korg MS-20 Mini, Ensoniq Mirage/SQ-80, Sequential Circuits Prophet-600, Hohner String Performer

I'm satisfied with answers, but it does not change my opinion. I'm simply not interested in this kind of "Amiga".

Few would have given Barry any grief if he had just released Commodore branded PCs with retro styling, instead of tacking the C64 and Amiga brands on machines that don't warrant them.  He doesn't seem to understand why so many people hate what he's doing.
He's a huckster, and little else.

It's time for a new poll...

Before i read the Q&A when it eventually comes up i just want to state that I for one am neutral and open to having my mind changed (not likely but possible).

I set up this poll with as many responses i could think of with multiple choices allowed so please forgive me if i missed a response.

Let the trolling begin!


The bold portion negates everything you said earlier. If you are open minded, you wouldn't say "not likely but possible" because you are already pre-staging a bias which is contradictary to open-minded. To be open-minded means non-biased.

I think Windstar fails to realise that there is a history and that reading behind the lines of his interview the Baron has quite a talent for male cow excrement (BS)

Barry's the man! I knew he would come through. Never doubted him for a second!


There should be a way to mark heavy sarcasm :-)
