Good news. But i will wait until OS4 is ready. From the day that OS4 is ready, i'm off to buy the XE version.

Keeping fingers crossed...

Aaaaaaarrrghh! I was going to get a SharkPPC... but now i'm sooo tempted to get a personal loan and put together an AmigaONE system....

oooooh don't tempt me so!  :-D

Either way, I think i'll wait until OS4 is actually available...

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*


Well, thats my point. BeOS is dead, the platform is getting old (mind you, the OS is far more advanced than Amiga and still more advanced in certain areas compared to Windows and MacOSX[from what i've heard]). The system is very usable, but as time goes on, is unable to run on some hardware.

AmigaOS and A1 coudl mean a new platform for these people. However, OpenBeOS could also be the savour. But, i wonder if they'll manage to get the big corps to port their software? Open Source projects dont have a lot of luck with that. So a commercial alternative might be a good bet.

AmigaOS is in a good position to steal a few.

BeOS has been refered quite often as AmigaOS's brother/son/daughter - relation or something like that. So many people see a link, and may very well look at AmigaOS before anything else.

Well, its a south park version of me that is accurate in that I have short hair, a goatee, and wear clothing that gives me away as a fan of "metal" :-)

Not too sure if the gormless expression is accurate, but then I can't see my face all the time :-D

Everyone here must try and get this submitted onto slashdot....if we get the linux PPC people to see there are "cheap" boards available it could push a good amount of orders eyetechs way..... give them as much monetary support as possible....the more orders they get the cheaper these boards will become!

I've submitted twice, one very amiga geared the other very linux geared..... the more they see coming in, the more likely it'll be posted.

Go and promote the amiga! :D

Gee, dude. Don't take up a loan to buy a computer. Bad things happen that way. Much better to work the streets dressed in a nice leather outfit ;-)

Whoever posted this news would be correct if by "released" he meant "not released".

Please people, READ the press release instead of the misinformed clifnotes. There's nothing here to cheer for unless you love LinuxPPC.

They also make it sound like early adopters are getting a discount, but I see no evidence of this. Are thy saying the prices will be higher when AmigaOS4 is actually available and bundled? Well apparently not because I read the whole press release and it's not there. *sniff* *sniff* do you smell that?

What it _means_, is that the "fabled" XE that wouldn't "be released this year" actually is shipping before christmas. Some people are bound to be eating a lot of rather large camels over that one. Of course, I _did_ tell you so. :-D

And to mr ignorant there (aka strobe):

"So, in return, we are offering all users who wish to take up this 'Earlybird' offer a free, registered, copy of OS4 for the AmigaOne as soon as it becomes available. The Earlybird 'free OS4' offer represents a saving of around 12% on an AmigaOneG3-SE mo otherboard"

So, does it say what you gain by buying immediately, or doesn't it? I would say it does. And yes, it does say when the stuff will be delivered, it says before christmas 2002. Learn to read, strobe. I think there's some rather good educational software for 5 year olds available for Mac.

gimme gimme gimme!


p.s.:  Anyone want to sponsor me an XE board so I can write SCSI drivers for all adaptec PCI cards ?
