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.

AmigaOne @ Amiga+Retro Computing 2002 : Comment 4 of 52ANN.lu

Again it is up to the user groups to support Amiga at their own expense without any support from Amiga Inc. and/or its partners. Quite the contrast to the old days with Petro (or even Thendic's way of doing things) when user groups actually felt very supported.
Good luck and success to you guys doing this. I hope you get some substantial acknowledgement for your work from the people who benefit from it. Amiga Inc. is constantly asking for support from Amiga enthusiasts, but they seem to be very reluctant in supporting the users - as McEwen said, he considers small user group shows to be "fun" but not enough exposure.
Yeah, that is a big "thanks" to all the volunteers who have kept Amiga alive throughout the years and supported the current Amiga Inc. a lot too.
Actions speak louder than words, and so far Amiga Inc.'s support to users has been all talk, very little action. I remember Petro riding to town with huge boxes of promotional goodies and Thendic too supporting almost any and every user group event in the world. And then there are people like Fleecy who cancel more times than the others attend, or don't even answer emails etc.
Lack of resources is a convenient excuse, but not a very good one. It doesn't take huge effort to support these events with something, and certainly not always needing to fly there in person... But they just want the support from people without having to give anything in return.
Oh well. Sorry for the rant. Again, good luck to you user group guys doing this demo. I hope it goes well. Your support towards the Amiga community is appreciated. Thank you.
