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.

" I put this sales announcement so I could see if there is even ONE individual that still had belif to AmigaInc ... So far, no-one has announced their willingness to be part of this great party. "
I think many people still believe...but paying to *you* isn't the way of showing it! If you think it's worthless, just give it away for free! :(
If those OS developers are so sure about releasing OS4 quite soon, just give them bit more time...Crying out (and bitching) LOUD won't solve problems!
What comes to AInc. 'fancy' coupon deal, we'll see, maybe Hyperion and Eyetech won't have to pay licensing costs to benefit those coupon owners or something like that?
There has been lot's of work and Hyperion has worked only ~1 year with OS4, but they have made use of existing OS3.x code so we *do* have a hope getting new OS very soon! :)
These delays are VERY typical in computer industry, so stay cool!
On the other hand I could use MOS with A1, but I don't mind using nice & stable Linux too! :)
