In reply to Comment 9 (Anonymous):
Calm down. Its a good article. I happen to disagree with some points of it:
"Who can name a company employing servers based on PowerPC CPUs"
Working for IBM as I do we have a customer list for PPC based servers ( as well as the more upmarket SP systems ) that if printed on toilet paper in point 12 font would keep Belgium clean for a week. We also rake in billions of dollars in revenue and make our customers multiple-billions by giving them processor technology which is streets ahead of most others in the price range backed up with 24x7 software.
I agree with the thrust of the article - that its a missed oppurtunity - but Amiga users are made up of a good percentage of small spenders. These are the ones that winge about hardware limitations in one breath and in the other winge that they have to buy new hardware to run a revised OS.
So, whilst I think Fleecy, Bill and Gary have missed the plot a little what plot they have left stands up reasonably well to inspection.
In the meantime I am more concerned about the comments like "naysayers have an agenda". If the Amiga community is going to turn all militant and seperatist then it can go insert disk into fd0.
So, I might buy a Zaurus, I dont care if it runs Linux or a ZX Spectrum basic if I can write apps for it, the tcpip stack doesnt limit me to 4 open ports at once and the display is good. Id rather a Psion Netbook.
I might just walk away - in the end that is my choice and has nothing to do with "agenda" but much to do with the current undertone of macarthyism that is prevalent in the Amiga press today.
