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!

Now we're really getting close to agreeing with each other. In the middle of your talks about the drama in these kind of duscussions, you close to pin pointed exactly what I've been trying to say all along: we need to realize and accept our differences. Right now, this community is acting like a bunch of people from different branches of christianity that is arguing about which church is more "pure" (sorry about making yet another dramatic analogy). We could get along just fine if we would just accept and respect our differences. I mean, it's not until then that we might actually have a constructive relationship and possibly collaborate on those issues that we do have in common.
However, these kind of things cannot be forced either. Most oftenly, it takes a climax or something really drastic in the conflict before everyone is able to realize that the other party is not going away and that we need to learn co-existing with each other. Co-existing doesn't neccessarily mean that we have to become re-united as one community or striving towards some form of common goal, just avoiding the conflict and focus on what will benefit our prefered choice rather than trying to fight the alternatives.
