After it was clear that neither Amiga Inc., nor Eyetech and Hyperion Entertainment will present the new AmigaOne at the AMIGA + RETRO COMPUTING 2002, we started thinking about how to get an AmigaOne to the show anyway.|
Source : Amiga-news.de
The solution is an offer from Computer City.
Owner Ron van Herk provides his own AmigaOne, and the members of the
Amiga-Club im BTX & Internet
will do the presentation.
The computer on display is an AmigaOneSE-G3 with 750CXe 600 MHz CPU,
equipped with 128 MB SDRAM PC133 and an ATI Radeion 7000 64 MB SDR
VGA graphics card with TV-Out, and of course the Cherry
Cybo@rd-keyboard that's being sold by Computer City. The operating
system installed is only a Suse LinuxPPC 7.3, but it'll give an
impression of the hardware.

This isn't a war, it's a project. Projects usually have goals, and milestones along the way. Of course there could be certain "unknowns" and surprizes, but I find it hard to believe that there really are *that* many unknowns at this time (when they actually are selling the product).

Of course. But still, they are selling the product *now* (I consider OS4 and A1 to be two components of *one* product). If they can't tell their customers when they can start to use their "new Amigas" as "Amigas", then they shouldn't be selling the product at this time IMHO.
But perhaps it's true what they (McEwen, Hermans, Redhouse) said in November 20: "AmigaOS4.0 in its final stages of development and testing". Perhaps it is a final, fully betatested, version of OS4 that is to be released in spring 2003? Who knows? Certainly not their customers ...
