There was 3 slides in Alans presentation, one for an ATX version and 2 for the Lite (I think, could be vice-versa)


Perhaps you mean the MicroATX?  :-P  8-)

I saw those slides too, the slides are obviously real, but is this announcement real too? I have not seen anything about this from the "official" sources. Let's just hope that you are not just falling for a hoax that exploits those slides.
MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)

Lets hope this eventuates, i was going to wait for AOS on peg so i could fit it into a small custom designed and built box. Seeing that the likelyhood of that would have been slim considering the rift, it looks like my wants may be fullfilled... Im off to search for more info.

Would somebody please change the news text.
The A1-lite is a mini-ITX board not a micro-ATX board.

Be nice if this comes to fruition.  ITX Amiga inside a toy Millenium Falcon, anyone? :)

Warface, same reason people troll in newsgroups.  F'rex, there's someone who trolls the c.s.a.m NG (and has since ... 1994ish?) with a post that basically says "We're throwing away x number of amigas since they're no good to us any more" and then goes on in gristly detail about how 100 or 500 or 1000 Amiga systems were taken to a local landfill and crushed with a bulldozer, burned, smashed with hammers, or tossed into a nearby river...

The poster(s) then usually lament about how "We tried to get rid of them but nobody wanted to take them!  They really are junk!"

They inevitably catch a few people who'll wail and moan about it...and then someone who's been on the NG a while will point out that the same message gets posted every eighteen months or so, and that way back when it was first posted, someone from the alleged area in Canada where this "tragedy" (didn't) occur(ed) confirmed that there was no such company by the name of the "offenders", nor was there any such landfill etc.

So why do they do it?  To twist people's tails.

edit: Something somewhat like this did happen to me...buddy of mine (hi, Gregg!) is a film editor/CGI guy and when he was working on Dinosaur out in Los Angeles, he mentioned in passing during a phone convo that a co-worker had recently given away eight or so A2000's (all "Video Toasters" remarkets from NewTek) but didn't secure me one as he didn' t think I'd want it :-( :-( :-(

untill I see a new amiga with a new amiga os.
I will look at amiga as a hoax or as vapor ware.

Please prove me wrong.

But I am so tired of waiting and waiting, while the community gets more and more torn apart.
