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?

I was involved in the negotiations between H&P and Metabox. Unless Metabox is lying to us:
1) the hardware is NOT finished
2) there is no software yet.
If they are developing their own 68K emulation, they certainly have not told H & P although this would be a perfect negotiation ploy.
They did say at one point they would release the boards with Linux.
Hopefully they have been made to understand that Linux is not what people need an Amiga accelerator for.
