OS4 still hasn't came yet?
« on: March 23, 2003, 04:42:40 PM »
Man, I've been away forever, enjoying my new PC with 2000 Pro.

I figured something would have happened by now.

Crap!

All the Amiga community has to offer is Pegasus?
MorphOS?

ewwwwww.....


Must be worst than I thought.

Fill me in on what I've missed.

Nothing much apart from delays and the usual "AmigaONE boards are shiping" and the army of apologists defending Amiga companies at all costs.

Amiga OS4 is almost finished and AmigaOne boards are already shipping to end users.  Pretty much the same story as the last year....

Just "two more weeks".

Nothing much. The spring collection of modern
generalization-terms has arrived. All flamers that want to
be "in" just must use these hot terms as often as possible
and in as unwarranted situations as they can find.
 
Before it was very "chic" to use the term "MOS-follower"
and "BAF" as soon as someone had a different view from
you. (Actually this stone-age way of flaming is still used
by some people without any fashion sense - everyone
knows it's sooo out). The latest, hottest, very
fashionable trend is use the term "apologist" for everyone
not bashing AInc at every turn. And it's cheap! Everyone
can do it without even thinking! Don't you just love prêt
à porter
for the masses?
 
It's all very modern and all, but I for one cannot wait for
the anti-generalization movement to get a firm grip on the
flame-fashion industry. I still hope to see a collection of
conservatory "I disagree with you because..." and "I see
why you might think so, but..." on the catwalks sometime
in my lifetime.
 
Here's looking forward to the summer collection.

Nonsense, the apologists are the people who will defend,lie and make excuses for what Amiga companies do wrong, there is a big difference between an Amiga user and a Amiga apologist, they have a new site so hopefully they will stick with it.

Come back in six months and see what has happened. MAYBE (emphasized, bolded, underlined, italic MAYBE) then we'll have OS4.

Just maybe.

I'm sorry to say, but that's blatant generalization at its
finest. My fashion analogy stands. As an example, you are
effectively judging an entire website just
because there are a couple of die-hards posting there (and
yes, I have actually read the threads there, and there is
noone making up stuff to defend anybody. People are just
trying to see some positive aspects in the sad state of
affairs. That's not apologizing, that's having a different
viewpoint. That's people having hope for the way they like
their hobby to develop.)
 
 You see, there is no right or wrong in this. No good or
evil. Some people see Genesi as the worlds greatest
scumbags. Some look on AInc as the founders of all evil.
Most of us are just happy to see anything happening with
a platform "dead" for more than ten years. Who is right?
I sure know that I think it's more than childish
to insult people -be they MOS/AOS/AInc/Genesi/
Elbox/Amithlon/whatever - "supporters", by calling them
deragatory names and by putting everyone under the
same generalized label. Everyone has a different view on
things. Respect that.

hey slimjim,

While you are studying terms, will you look up the term hypocrite and see if that still has any meaning.

Aren't you painting 'flamers' with same broad generalizations that you accuse them of committing?

"the latest trend is to use the term 'apologist' for everyone not bashing Ainc."

since no one is actually doing that, I don't know what you are referring too, or who you are trying to criticize in your post, but it seems what they call...and I don't know if this term is fashionable, but its an oldy and a goody ...a 'self-refuting' argument.
If being over general is bad, then you, sir, are baaad....baaadd baaaad

:-)

I don't think you are bad...but you must be an amiga apologist...since I didn't detect any amiga bashing in your post :-)

OH CRAP...I didn't really address Amiga in this post either...so I'm an amiga apologist now....oh well :-)

@ Marktime
 
:-D An actual argued response!
 
By all means, if you consider "flamers" as a homogeneous
group, you could indeed claim that I am generalizing.
But it seems you take my use of "flamer" as being another
name for the entire community. I don't.
 
It is quite clear (to me, it must be noted) that people, that
previously were using "BAF", are now taking the term
"apologist" to heart when wanting ammo to flame. The
infamous "You're just a MOS-fanatic" is still seeing heavy
use though, so I guess this olden goldy is still a winner... ;-)
 
... -edit (since you did)-
 
Well, if you want to consider yourself an apologist, that's
OK with me...;-) Others calling you that, only based on
you not agreeing with them on AInc:s policies, is not OK in
my book though.

A click on your profile shows your last post was on March 9. That isn't exactly "away forever," especially in AmigaLand. But I guess time flies when your having fun. ;-)
