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.
It seems like Sam Jordan&gang hates Ralph Schmidt and vice versa.
As Ralph currently has monopoly on the HW, and Sam Jordan has monopoly on SW, we aren't going anywhere.
Also, for some reason, The WOS gang seem to flame Ralph bigtime anytime he says anything.
- 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 can. They could start by paying their employees. Then they might have some PPC versions of their games.
- 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.
Do we ? AFAIK, the only real choice is WOS. Unless you use Voyager. I'm not complaining, it is just the only choice. And using Voyager would be silly, as it is utterly unstable.
- 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.
So true. Harmony is non-existing
