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?

> The decision to leave out memory protection was a good decision at the time.
Memory protection has very little to do with all this, we're talking about API's, not how they are implemented. We're talking about the fact that system vital data is out in the open, and programs are SUPPOSED to access that public data directly, without using setters/getters. That's what we're talking about.

This has nothing to do with memory protection...

Again, memory protection has nothing to do with all that, the issue was better HW, certainly not better or more efficient SW.
