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?

Certainly there is. People can make wrong decisions, and so design decisions can be wrong as well. Features, on the other hand, are deemed to be "good" thing, you'd never think of them as bad things.

But you needn't expose such a "feature". User programs ended up implementing copy message-passing anyway, since you obviously cannot keep working on the data
you just sent to another task.

Well, surely that's not me? I'm _exactly_ saying that AmigaOS is instable by design, that nothing can be done about it.
