@ x56h34

Granted you are right.  But there is OS4 still to come and potentially he has destroyed it's market.

Who will develop for hardware that Alan says he will no longer develop.

As for the past, I believe Alan knew what he was doing and still does.  I didn't buy the A1 myself so I have no vested interest or emotional attachment to the hardware (if there is such a thing).  He kept a dream alive, yes, I never claimed he made millions - but he must have recouped beyond his development costs otherwise he would not have made such damaging comments.

If OS4 see's the light of day the A1 may be developed further but for now that is not going to happen and I would be very suprised if many "Amiga Enthusiasts" would buy from Eyetech anyway.

The unfortunate thing is - OS4 is tied to the A1 hardware and like it or not Alan still may see profit from his callous comments.

@Magic-Merl:

It'll be interesting to see how Hyperion will handle OS4.0 from this point in regards to the AmigaOne/Eyetech situation. Probably the best thing for them would be to expand on the OS4.0 supported hardware, however it seems that there are limitations on this due to licensing, as you've mentioned in your last post.

Hi Mr. Paul Gadd.  You could have simply used your original account rather than violating the terms of service and creating a new account.

Not according to the management screen it's not.  That doesn't give you the right to ignore the posted rules though.  I've confirmed your account works, but if you don't change the e-mail address and your signature immediately, I will begin actively banning you again for trolling and violating the TOS.

Someone must have guessed my password and set up the Unisys account and changed my email address and signature. I am innocent of all charges.

Poster: Wayne  Posted: 2005/6/6 9:12:13    Of course all of this about the Mac is subject to the pending expected announcement today that Apple is going with Intel.     Please note that no one has said that Apple is going x86. Intel might simply start building PPC chips as well, since there is a hell of a lot of competition in the x86 world.


Well, From Jobs lips to our ears... Macs go X86!
That should make things interesting.

Hell of a time to take a holiday. ANN is missing out on some good flamewars.

Not much news in the 20 Q&As if you ask me. Nevertheless the honesty and sincerity is very refreshing (coming from Amiga related companies anyway).

at least the C64 has new hardware out there at the mo!

By the way, do you mean official hardware (The TV-joystick) or unofficial ("CommodoreOne", for example)?

In many cases I find unofficial hardware better & more important for the future...

@Odin

You can call me a troll all you want, but every single thing i accused Redhouse of through the years has been totally spot on. Crooks and ignorant followers are the ones to blame and they are certainly the ones who are damaging the so-called future Amiga, not the scapegoats (ie people who live under bridges).

So the world may know

@Paul_gadd/Unisys:

Of course it is all to blame on the crooks and the ignorant followers. Of course the scapegoats are not to blame after all. And of course were you totally spot on with every 'accusation' about Redhouse in the past.

Let me clue you in on a little detail. Your life is not defined by Amigas, nor do you need to derive your identity from them. Get a life (i.e., one without computers), and consider seeking out professional help. It is not healthy to get so worked up about something which is nothing more than a somewhat nerdy hobby. Let it go. Noone cares anymore.
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.

I'm just glad Alan used the term 'Amiga Enthusiast' rather than 'Amigan'...

It's not a very good warm-up for the 20-year celebrations, is it? Still, I gave up wanting a new Amiga years ago, happy with my A1200/030 (with slightly dodgy clock).

Whatever happened to Jim Collas anyway, after he was unceremoniously chucked out of Gateway? Come to think of it, what happened to Gateway?
