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!

There is lots of competition on the PC marked. All these HP, Dell, IBM, Toshiba or whatever. Works for the same PC so called platform.
Now as we have choosen for choosing PPC and forgetting custom chips. Its better to have a name for it. Amiga will be the open alternative to Mac for example. AmigaOS can also easy knockout Linux if it got good support. But it dosen't. Because people which actually wants to code for morphos or amigaos4 is getting scared off by thess discussions.
Amiga stands out in thats its free, easy and for everyone. Spirit Of Amiga is the campaign to get red and blue to become friends. Become lojal and accept each others choices because of all the waiting suffering which every real Amiga user have experienced.
The goal here, is to in the end be able to attract programmers at big software houses to start looking for AmigaOS4 and MorphOS. I've actually sent mails to Virgin, Adobe, Corel, Macromedia and others and asked about MorphOS and AmigaOS4 support. And most of them just dosen't like the debate climate which exsists between Pegasos and AmigaONE users. We need to start working tougether as a community and HUG, HUG each others. Either we are blue, red, green, yellow, black or white.
Spirit Of Amiga campaign is here to stay and I hope that you will support it. T-shirts, cups etc will be made later on. We need to show the world that we care, and stop with fighting. We just destroy more than we rebuild. And thats sad.
