FS: AmigaGO Dedicated UAE Laptop
« on: September 16, 2014, 08:14:00 PM »
So earlier this year I embarked on a project to see if I could get UAE running on Thin clients and Thin Client Laptops.  I was able to get UAE to run in XP Embedded just fine.  

Heres the blog about it complete with pics and video of it running

Yes, I know this is UAE and you've all been there and done that. However, I really like how these XP embedded thin clients boot directly into the emulated OS on it's own hardware. I know it's still emulated but I think it's a great idea and I'm going to use it with my sons so they can play some of the great games I grew up with.

I have an AmigaGo coming so I'll pop back in and let you know how it works. It should be fun. He also has a thin client desktop version that I also have coming. I plan on setting that one up in our family room. Now I just need to find more working Atari joysticks for my full retro 80s/90s gaming experience.

@C64man

Are these officially licenced items?  Has the software that is bundled with the laptop been provided with written permission from the respective copyright holders?

Why do you care?

I think you know the reasons why.  I do not intend to get into a discussion with you about it.

I care because I have a duty towards users here on this website.

If the items are unlicenced and advertised here then users could unwittingly buy an item thinking it is legitimate product.  This website is not a platform for selling pirated software.

he can install Amigaforever on it (after getting the licenses). Perfectly legal.

He is branding it as "AmigaGO!" with checkmark laptop as well as selling it full of Amiga games and applications.

He needs to have permission to brand it as an "Amiga" product of course.  He also has to have written permission for each copyright holder of games and application he bundles on the laptop unless they are GPL or similar.

I did not thought of this "brand" (even though Amiga is AmigaInc. so they should care). He can preinstall Amigaforever (that includes lots of software). If he adds additional stuff of course he needs permissions.

But my view is that in this slowly shrinking community we all care too much about "copyright owners" and legal things but that is another topic. He should rename it (remove Amiga from name) and preinstall Amigaforever then no "copyright owner" needs a "written permission" anymore.
