Commodore USA was not set up as charity to support the development of AROS. It holds less than nothing of interest or importance to me, or 99.999999% of our intended market. It is a product that I or any other company could not use at all, as it has NO commercial value now, as is. So why are you all so concerned??

Our relationship with them, along with our support for the elegant, robust and lightweight AROS desktop operating system, will ensure that they and future customers will benefit from our new and exciting vision, and enable the legacy Commodore and Amiga culture to flourish.


One of these is not like the other

I'd like to issue a blanket to you and anybody else who dignifies this scam company by starting any "Commodore USA" threads. Now .

Both are from Barry.
The latter, from the press release, was written by Barry.
The former was after you guys brought out the pitchforks.
What a difference one week with you guys makes. :-D

so either amiga.org is totally not the target group or we dictate corporate policy ?


Somewhat tangentially, do we have any communication from any AROS developers ?

Only in america can you go from fanboy on a message forum to chief technical officer of that company in a few months or less.
 
Chief technical officer? Wow sounds important. Yeah right you dumbass,
show us your paystubs, then we'll see how important you really are to this
so called "company".
 
Why does a company who is just slapping stickers on pre-existant products need a technical officer? Do you print the stickers for them?
 
What a crock of . That is all.

hmm, I see moderators will be busy with this thread.

atleast have some decency and speak like grown ups... no need to insult like a child.

as to CUSA, I await their (new announced)products. Everything else was already said and no need to go over it yet again.

No, amiga.org just managed to get him to spill his true oppinions about AROS, which... suprise suprise... do not match the nonsense he started off with :hammer:

AFAIK, none of them care, what matters is submitted code.

Childish insults don't hurt anyone, grown ups use weapons and lawyers, I know what I prefer.

@haywirepc
TBH I was initially offered Head of IT/Product Development.
I said why not make it CTO.
Better to take it before he gives it to someone else. ;-)
The problem is that you see things as they are now.
You don't see where this is going.
And that is why we can't have nice things. ;-)

AMIGA.ORG is the anti-target group, they don't want to sell any products, real or imaginary, to us.  Barry's pissed at all of us because we exposed his phoney resume...

But we can have nice things, but obviously not from Commodore USA.

Ofcourse, I dont have any problem with Commodore USA selling Windows PCs, that's exactly what all the other Commodores have been doing, including CBM. I also don't have any problem with CUSA sticking Amiga stickers on PCs, that's most likely also what old CBM would have done at some point had they not folded (they were quite ready to replace AmigaOS with NT on the PA-RISC based next generation Amiga systems iirc). I also don't give a rats ass about those fantasy drawings on the website, so what if they were "ripped" from aminet, what matters is that it will _never_ materialize - it's all just nonsense and hot air.

All in all I have no problem with Commodore USA at all, it's just great drama for me, I would never ever buy anything from them, since there's nothing CUSA has to offer that I want.

We can set up a bet if you like - if you ever manage to produce the fantasy case in solid quality, with a real solid Amiga keyboard as shown on the render (I'd prefer it to be USB connector internally), with a price tag of max 200 USD - I'd buy several, honoustly, I would.  Fat chance though, huh? :lol:

I'm not sure I quite grasp what you're getting at here. Could you be a little more direct?
