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?

>IMO "broken by design" is an over-dramatic way to say "it doesn't have memory protection."
But it is broken by design, on many levels. No resource tracking, no memory protection, no validation of parameters by most OS functions, no protection against buffer overflows, one comon address spaces, string arrays in public structures, deadlock issue, no reference counts in critical structures, no protection against NULL pointers, murky concept of sharing library bases, and the list goes on. It works, most of the time, but it is never going to make it to Mars or into a surgical robotor ;) With AmigaOS, you can never be sure that the mp3 player or browser used while compiling doesn't shoot into the compiler's address space and introduces a subtle bug.
