Well obviously this is fantastic news. Unfortunatly, the world wont take notice untill the OS is ready for the hardware. Soon, very soon, it shall all come together. I hope we can manage to get back a few BeOS converts (those who used AmigaOS and converted to BeOS).

At least now, we shouldnt have as much if any shrinkage in the Amiga Community. This is a time to grow. We wont grow alot, but even a little bit would be good for everyone.

Isn't the BeOS closer to death than the AmigaOS?  Sure, parts of it are now incorporated into the PalmOS, but at least we're getting new machines and a new OS.  And soon a brand-spanking new A1 G4 @ 800 MHZ.  Excuse me while I  faint again.  *thud* :-)

What's that old saying "From the smallest of acorns, mighty oak trees grow".

With all the B$ flying around recently, this could be the first of many upbeat announcements.

There's life in the old dog yet.

Excellent news.  Especially that the SE and XE models (G3 @ 600Mhz & G4 @ 800Mhz, respectively) will be available for simultaneous release.

OS4 for AmigaOne by early 2003, was about what I realistically expected, but I hope the Cyberstorm version will be ready sooner, so we can find out what its like.

Are you sure it wasn't at Rodney's mention of BeOS? It does have a barfing sound to it. :-)  Hoody-Hoo!  A1 G4 @ 800MHz!!!  I think I'm going to faint again.  *thud*

With this system one can really start building future AmigaOS machine(via UAE on PPC Linux on the A1). And developing OS4 apps with the GCC crosscompiler for OS4...

I've already done that, to both my kidneys. I now use rubber tubing, a sainsbury's bag and a coffee filter instead.

Just Imagine this G4 800 badboy with a Radeon 9700 cranking out Quake II. This aint your father's Amiga:-D

Also as someone else mentioned, it would be nice for gfx packages like Imagine to get Altivec extensions!!
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!
