Amiga is now so divided that groups is threaten its reputation. More and more people which I try to sell MorphOS or AmigaOS4 to, says that the war/etc discussions between this groups kills the platform. Amiga needs a good reputation and it wont have that before we all agree on that going on with both under one name. Which is AMIGA as PC is in the other side of computing. Amiga is a strong word. People remember it,.. but with Amiga showing off that we have AmigaOne, Pegasos etc++ That the community is running PPC motherboard components. That this community is about beein our self. To show that we are different.
This is good! And we need to turn the negative words against each other over to positive words. We as the Amiga community controlled lots of it, when everything seemed lost. And now were splitted for nothing? Who's to blame? No one! Its about time, its about the time we all have waited. That users, etc companies have found out how good AmigaOS code is. That it is revolutionary in many ways, but it dosen't help when this community trhows snowballs on each sides when actually both sides is fighting for the same thing. To be the next generation Amiga.
But as Classic Amiga was and is the real Amiga. This new PPC motherboards is not Amiga at all. But they are choices. They have become new choices for everyone. And now we need to rebuild it all. We need to focus on getting Amiga reputation back. And that Amiga as from now on stands for what we all was and are. A userbase that is different and that we really care about each others.
Let us be the Spirit Of Amiga. Let us give Amiga a new life, a community that cares and that wants support from other big companies etc. Medias have allways been overwhelming positive over us. We cannot destroy it now. We need to focus on beeing an alternative platform to Linux, BeOS, Windows, MacOS etc.

Now lets start to be what Amiga is allways been. The personal computer for home and entertainment areas!

Hi Emeric SH,
While it IS totally pessimistic to say that, Bill Buck said "We must sell 20,000 per month to survive", and that would apply to the other side of the fence, that is Eyetech also.... Well, do you see sales of that magnitude happening any time soon? With those projections, BOTH companies ARE in the toilet.
This IS Amiga and Atari all over again!!!!
The big difference is, the public does not take chances anymore, is not willing to go out on a limb, like in the past, because in the past, no one company was a clear cut route to the future. None were "it", unlike now, where m$ is firmly entrenched as the system to own.
BUT, I am telling you what you do already know.
The ONLY way for us to be considered at all is having the same price point as an x86 PC, and that's near impossible to get to. :-((((
Nor ibum and motoscum seem interested in helping out, in what would be in their own best interests. I think moto's days are numbered, personally. Well, they still seem strong in the cell phone segment, but wait'll the big players close in on their market share in that, too.
ibum just seems interested in making really expensive CPUs, and that's why they were practically shut out of the micro computer market THEY created! That's what happened the first time around, and they seem destined to repeat it.
