|In reply to Comment 3 (Ian):|
This reply mirrors much of my feeling re Amiga's direction. OS4.0 is really a distraction to what appeared to be their main game. Surely the 0S4.0 path cannot be a money earner in any possible future yet by pushing it this way they have they make it their central development path. The developments of 3.5, 3.9 were fine because they were side issues and had been farmed out.
Also, what happened to Amiga's claims to only beleive things heard from them? Their web site still has no official announcements (the only bit is the news of the sharp deal). They seem to be using newsgroups and other rumour mills as their way of talking to the world when they have previously said to ignore this.
Looking forward to the announcement of the DE platform being a viable OS at the conferance, runnable on my Pentium based PC, now we know this is a far future option. Hardware limiting (to their specific ppc spec) is a very market limiting move unfortunately, especially for all the ex-amigans who have been forced to the darkside.
