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!

|I suspect Christian Kemp needs to start a new forum titled something along the lines of humor, perhaps "The funnies", for this thread sure is funny.|
First off you don't blame consumer choice for things gone bad unless you are some communist dictator or such. And hey like it or not we all really do know that the consumers had absolutely nothing to do with such complete mismanagement of the Amiga technology.
Second off, The Amiga and Amiga like lines aren't diddly squat in comparison to other more well known and far better supported systems proprietary and open source... The only people that remember Amiga are those who actually knew it to remember it now, when Commodore had it then.
So you want to sell t-shirts and coffee mugs under some out of touch with reality perspective banner...
boo hoo, there is to much divide going on.....so lets divide it some more.... get in line for you tee-shirt and coffee mug.... instead of puting your money to better use in more directly support of your flavor...
If there is any blame to place.... its on bone headed marketeers...
You want a community gathering? Over what? What's the realistic focal point, if there need be one?
Or better yet, what came first, the community or the Amiga (this really new and cool computer that can do more than the competition)?
Sorry but the hard fact is that, that core point for the gathering no longer exist.
There is no more fun hardware hacking or software coding, etc.. that the Amiga brought at its introduction and maintained until Commodore pulled the core plug.
A realistic picture of what is current is simply a multi-route effort to find a way to not forget what we liked about the platform. And the only ones it really matters to are those involved in doing something about it, the rest are just observers or potential customers if you are looking from such a perspective.
To focus on what we all have in common, its simply most of us (not all) knew and used Amigas when Commodore manufactured it. There are quite a few who didn't get involved until after that fact (Including Bill McE and fleecy..)
But even today most all the original and commodore hired Amiga Developers don't see teh Amiga as being Alive or even up to par with what else is available.
Even I'm beginning to realize that Linux and other Uni* distros will probably incorporate such functionality I liked about Amiga before any of the Amiga redo efforts get complete enough. So it'll be an Amiga and like catchup to more popular and better supported works.
Amithlon shown a PC market for Amiga was there, but it was shot down and now the proprietary is for PPC..... go figure....
You want to be different.....????? Different than what? Popular and well supported?
Supprise!!! you are already there!!!
Careful..... don't lose such a prized position in the market!!!!
But now do you see that the divide isn't a divide at all, but a supporting method to give you waht you want...
How much are teh t-shirts and coffee mugs?
