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!

In reply to Comment 56 (Sammy Nordström):
>...divided we shall fall

...but let history remember that as free men we chose to make it so!

I just love the amount of drama that we as a community manage to pack into these discussions. All the emotional quotes, religious subtexts and misguided loyalty that would make for a huge block-buster for sure. Given that the target audience be nerds of course... :)

>since I don't believe it is possible for the former Amiga community to become
>one happy group of computer users with common goals and interests again, why
>keep standing in each other's way?

On one thing we agree: we should stop standing in each other's way. While not entirely happy about it (as I don't feel all the issues in need of resolving have been resolved), I'm beginning to feel that we should really let the bygones be bygones and move on - walking together side by side. If we eventually steer to different tangents, and to some extent that is bound to happen, so be it. But there are benefits to be reapt along the way.

Going back to my love of the drama in this community - I admit that is certainly a part of the problem. For many of us, this is what the community has become and is all about these days. We are drawn by the drama more than by the computer itself since for so long this drama has been all the progress the community has seen.

It is hard to let go of it, and perhaps for many of us it is too late. We certainly won't be the building blocks of a new friendlier community, but at least we can bite the bullet and not enforce our own division on a hopefully growing community that really doesn't need to be all the divided. (I'm not saying the future "Amiga" community should do everything together, just that there are benefits in doing something together.)
