@ Dammy

Still waiting for the answer... Was it eXfuze or AROS you were distributing... :D

Baby steps, Persia...baby steps.  Dammy has a lot on his mind to go looking too deeply at the glorious twists and turns that are linux distributions.


Then you tell me exactly what C=USA is planning.

You are being a lazy git.  Go hunt the answer down like a good little stalker, I am not doing the work for you.

They're planning to rip as many gullible folk off as they can by selling an off the shelf parts PC running an emulator at (most likely) ridiculous prices and adding the various brand names to make it look legit...:D

You know, I think this is the only conversation that actually has anything to do with the Commodore in this thread. ;)

ANyhoo, I wrote the guy, thankx for the link!

I'm getting 2 assembled! It is way better than that crap SID2SID.
"Second SID can be either 8580 or 6581 with any C64"

And it will work with MESSIAH too...

Read over the site, email the guy, he does PayPal, pretty reasonable I think.

To hook back into the subject if there's one still left, I think we are doing pretty good without a true mothership company, just look around. I think decentralized community / platform(s) is what will work, and be fun.
Earth has a lot of things other folks might want... like the whole planet. And maybe these folks would like a few changes made, like more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and room for their way of life. - William S. Burroughs

WELL, then!  Lemme tell ya!  They are planning on arriving way late to every party.  The whole PC clone market was done back in the early 2000s.

Thats better than ripping gullible folk off with parts that aren't even good enough to be put on the shelf to be put in a PC.
 
As PC hardware is at the cutting edge & is the cheapest, it would seem financial suicide to do anything else (see X1000).
 
Alienware seem to do quite a good job of selling an off the shelf parts PC for a lot of money.

No knowing who or what "Alienware" was I googled it... :eek:

If they can sell PCs at those prices then my beliefs have just been confirmed, folk who buy such PCs are either gullible, naive, rich, not very bright, just plain stupid or any combination of these... :D

Hmm... is there a point in having that "report" button here, kinda pointless removing the pathetic remark made by Dummy_2 about Dammy in the other thread and leaving this one here (post 112). reported it a couple of hours ago but it's still there... :(

(maybe it's something to with the lack of mods around here these days, some of them seem to have fallen off the edge of the earth... :))

(thank you (whomever) for removing that very offensive post... :))

Depends on which line your talking about.  C64x?  Vic series?  Amiga series?  If your talking nostalgia for Amiga series, your quiet correct, there isn't any to tap into for the number of unit sales Barry is looking for.  That will require something more special with excellent marketing.


Until a new business model emerges, they will still be subject to criticism they are receiving now. And, honestly, I can't think of any model in this day and age that can. I doubt, for example, that Barry's funds are any where near that of Google's.

we'll see once the sales start.

I think C-64x and VIC-Book will do very fine.

New business model isn't needed because the current one hasn't yet been tested.

I doubt Barry's funds are even anywhere near those of Franko's ebay account.

Android on the Desktop?  Might actually make sense, especially with a All-in-one like the HP Touchsmart.

But it's hard to see what party C=USA wouldn't be late to.  Introducing new desktops in the beginning year of the tablet wars.  Introducing media pcs in the year of internet TVs, etc.

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

So exactly, IF C64/VIC do good (no reason why they shouldn`t, no reason why they should either as there are many PCs in many nice cases) THEN CUSA Amiga will be launched at all ELSE everything will be wapor as usual. Tan and see
