Fleecy writes: AmigaOS4 will only run on hardware that conforms to the zico
specification - currently that is the Eyetech AmigaOne (which also offers full backwards compatibility with AA chipset access applications) and the bPlan AmigaOne, which will run AmigaOS4 apps and older apps which use retargetable coding. We look forwards to other Amiga hardware companies developing zico based solutions and are actively talking to them.

|In reply to Comment 20 (Keith Blakemore-Noble):|
I would also say that "Amiga Inc are abandoning us" is strange interpretation of
the recent announcements. Ok, so OS4.0PPC won't run on the old P5 ppc cards. Then
you'll simply have to use them with MorphOS, OS3.9, or upgrade your hardware. The
important thing here is that AmigaOS is moving on. If that means I have to upgrade
my Amiga to a past-1995 standard, that's ok with me.
> AInc have effectivly told us "Ha ha, we got your money now fsck off"
I think what they said could be more accurately translated as:
"Ha ha, we got your money, gave you a product in return, then announced another
Nothing too strange about that, I think, except for the "ha ha" at the beginning.
