To jurgen and anybody that belives like him. Haage even admits to pc hardware being out of date. I have the email.
The reason why the Amiga hardware was a liitle pricey is becasue you can do more with it ie a scsi card that reads 1-4 scsi type, holds a harddrive and ram, and external scsi and can be used in any zorro slot. The advertsing was and is the problem . You cant show AMIGA uae and expect people to come in droves its inst AMIGA it only hurts. Amiga XL cant run pc stuff so they will just say why bother and another loss . Merlancia is on the right road. I have spent many an hour talking to Dave and Ryan. Doing the right thing takes time and Merlancia is doing just that. Newtek is who you should vent your anger to. They belive in the pc mindset now. They have been "bought" out by mickysoft.
Southbridge (which was until recently just a PCI device itself).
This model uses multiple bus architectures that are incompatible with one
another. Aside from the difficulties inherent in this, it also makes it
difficult for a machine to scale well. The largest drawback, however, is
that the various busses easily become saturated. For example, a typical
Southbridge includes an EIDE ATA/100 controller and USB controller (in
addition to the other myriad devices). These two devices alone are require
more bandwidth than the PCI bus is capable of sustaining. With the
inclusion of FireWire, Ultra2 SCSI (let alone Ultra160 and Ultra320) and
audio it quickly becomes evident that the current shared-bus architecture
design methodology is inadequate and will only get worse as these peripheral
technologies improve. I won’t even discuss how bad it will get for video if
it continues to reside on AGP.
