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?

It's a design decision, not a design "feature".

I call it broken in the light of what it's needed nowadays. Systems without MP are ok only where you have full control over the whole system, and that's true only at the embedded level, but on a desktop OS such absence is harmful.

Why do I get the feeling you took it personally? I do like certain concepts in AmigaOS (or rather, AmigaDOS), I like the overall simplicity and usability, but there have been certain design decision that leave a lot to be desired and which I'm free to criticize.
