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 friend noone can understand that. The only explain I have is that the amiga community is too small for competitors.... Only a monopoly can be viable.
Also the problem with 2 kernels: as I know and from as I've heard is that worpOS is better and supported by Amiga. But for warpOS u have to by the compiler to program for this kernel, on the other side the developer tools for the powerUp kernel is free of charge.
From one point of view I'm glad to see all this energy and mess, because shows that the platform is still (for how long I don't know) ALIVE.
