In an attempt to gain further information regarding the release date of the AmiJoe I have been in contact with a variety of places. Read more below.
Blittersoft UK informed me that the units were ready and waiting on Haage & Partner (presumably for a license for the PPC 68k emulator+warpup). Bill Mc Ewen mentioned in a speech a short while back that they were working though with Met@box to lower the cost of the Amijoes to be around the 250$us or so mark by using as many standardized parts as possible. This still left the question of when it would come out so i then contacted met@box themselves, in which their international rep ("Susan") replied: "Please keep an eye on the website. I have no further info at present". Does anyone know anything more on this matter regarding its release?

|Well my Amiga 1200 should be here in about 4 days, and having an 020 is really|
going to suck ass, and I am sure as hell not going to purchase an old 68xxx CPU,
what is the point? My PeeSea is faster! If I do not see an AmiJoe soon, the 1200
is going back up for sale, and I am going to say,"so long" to the classic Amiga
hardware and purchase a freaking G4, at least that don't have IRQ's or BIOS, and
from what we are hearing, the new Tao/Amiga OS thing will run fine on it, not to
mention Linux, and QNX. No if we could just get people to stop comparing speed by
MHz, and start doing comparasons with something that really shows the commen consumers
the difference between Pintel, and Motorola... :O9
Other than that, I guess I alway have UAE, though I hate the shit out of it, damn
thing does not care if I have a 333Mhz AMD or a 55AMD, still seems to run like a
freaking 020, blah.... :O(
