20. March 2002: H&P is proud to announce the availability of Boing Bag 2
for AmigaOS 3.9. Boing Bag 3.9-2 contains many bug fixes, small
enhancement and new features in the areas multimedia (AMPlifier, PlayCD,
sound datatype), shell, Workbench (Find, AsyncWB, UnArc, XAD v10),
ReAction and harddisk support. The Boing Bag is delivered in three parts:
The main archive with all the files needed to update AmigaOS 3.9, the
translations into different languages and the contributions (CDDB library,
OpenURL, ClassAction). We want to thank all people that made it possible.
Please download at least the main archive and the translation(s) for the

>There are no 'emu-freaks', there are only realistic people who think going PPC->only is not a very smart move.
That would be unrealistic people... PPC is the only way to go IMHO. 68K is stone dead and x86 is a big NO NO NO, both because of the architecture, it sucks, and Microsoft buisness practices.
>The problem is you can't keep the Amiga alive by limiting the userbase to the >few who want to risc buying expensive custom PPC hardware.
Its not custom ppc hardware, its a standard PPC atx motherboard, with a standard PPC northbridge, a standard southbridge, standard agp and pci slots. There is no custom logic, just standard components. It will boot Linux and all the *BSD versions when they are ported.
Since it became possible to order the board I've seen quite alot of posts from people who either will buy the board or who, like myself, have already ordered it. This is the future of Amiga, not emulation on x86.

Hyperion are just realistic. They know there is no competing with Microsoft in the x86 market. On PPC they have a chance to succeed.
