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 still don't understand this problem that is continueing to plague the Amiga market.|
One thing that I have noticed in my fairly short live so far is that no matter how small the computer industry your working in, people just don't seem to be able to work together. The last few years of the Amiga existence have been a constant proof of that.
Instead of combining the best of both worlds we still have two kernels. I really don't understand this. But I guess it's just me (NOT!!!!!!!!).
Who can blame ClickBoom for still not making games for the PowerPC. It is or own damn fault. Instead of working together and helping each other we have been pissing each other off.
I personally think that Hyperion software are doing a brave thing making games for the kernel WHICH HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED BY AMIGA.
Can anybody please explain me why we still have two kernels and not just one with the best of both worlds? I thought I new but I have lost it.
And unless the explanation is a good one I still remain with my point: if there IS an industry wherein people aren't able to work together, it seems to be the computer industry.
