Either way, I guess we won't have that function on the AmigaOne because it uses a different floppy controller, right? Using Amiga floppies is out of the question too, unless a Catweasel device is implemented...
Speaking of hardware, does anyone know if it'd be possible for some clever guys to create zorro slots to attach to the AmigaOne somehow to be able to use some of the old hardware? I guess there wouldn't be much of a point to, but I'm curious anyway.
The thing I'll miss most is probably the Amiga's genlocking function, realtime video titling and ultrasmooth scrolling are gone too, right?
