Commenting a recent news item on amiga-news.de, Davy Wentzler of OS4 fame said the on-board sound of the AmigaOne does not work, furthermore explaining the chip is physically not present on AmigaOnes produced the last 9 months.
Frank Gutschow said on 05-Mär-2004, 23:38: "Meines erachtens sollte definitiv wirklich ersteinmal der Onboard-Chip des AmigaOne unterstützt werden."
Davy Wentzler answered on 05-Mär-2004, 23:45: "I'm gonna say it once more: it doesn't work. There's even a big chance, the chip is not physically present anymore on boards manufactured in the past 9 months."
Will Eyetech exchange all defect and component missing AmigaOnes or will they refund users that received broken hardware?

"And how else would you code an Amiga-like OS? Java? :-D"
I would use C for the lowest level components only. Parts such as the Prefs programs should be written in a high level language, IMO.
"Besides, the language used has very little to do with the instability of the system... The system is instable because apps do wrong things AND the system lacks memory protection."
IMO "broken by design" is an over-dramatic way to say "it doesn't have memory protection." As it has no memory protection, the application programs should be coded very carefully and tested very thoroughly. There are in practice plenty of stable Amiga programs which do not crash, and others such as Photogenics or Voyager which do.
