I don't think anyone is complaining because it is so dead on, and actually shows each point of view.

Next challenge: Expand grid to include classic systems, UAE and Natami.

I was trying to explain to my wife about the different Amiga factions a couple of months ago.  She didn't quite get it.  Your chart will help.

Blind Amiga Fanatic.

A pejorative term that has somewhat lost it's meaning these days (especially in the post Amiga v Hyperion litigation era), but as all of the next-gen-amigaos trolls are perpetually stuck in 2003, to them it's still common currency.

The counterpart "BGF" (Blind Genesi Follower) never really caught on as "smurf" had already made it into the wild :)

I like "Born Again Frieden." (The whole mess always confused me, anyway. I use a little bit of everything, just like I own all the major console systems. I'm not sure why people feel the need to choose sides.)

Wouldn't that give the impression that AROS zealots - the classname for which remains a secret, but given the famous, somewhat provocative Kitty I'm going to call "furries" - regard AROS as highly camp, rather than free?


I'm not gonna name names bro! ;)

Use this helpful 3x3 grid to understand where OS4/MOS/AROS zealots are coming from when they comment on any combination of the three different systems.


Goodness! I'm glad I stuck with OS 3.1 now :lol:

The first time I heard the expression was from a MorphOS user: http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=4084#5

Or get the pure PPC-compiler as that will also come with installer,
and even a special version of GoldED for free.


I know you want it, and you should know it to,there is no way of
escaping the smurf-armada :-P :-D ;-)


Jeez, that thread is ironic in hindsight:

I shouldn't think so, those four guys look quite normal compared to the average BAF.
