MicroAmiga available in October. : Comment 112 of 126ANN.lu
Posted by Fei on 01-Sep-2004 13:08 GMT
In reply to Comment 109 (Olegil):
"But DO NOT go spouting off about how much better something else is than an AmigaOne"

Sorry, it sounds to me like "you can watch the bears at the zoo but don't tease them as they're dangerous" ;).

"I know he's not interested. He doesn't see it as an Amiga at all, because he has a very different opinion on what makes something an Amiga than I do."

I don't see it as Amiga, either. But it's not a problem as I don't think Amiga is the only thing that can give you fun and satisfaction. There are two things that can convince me. One is "the user thing", so you get a computer and can do many things with it. Unfortunately, with A1 you can't because there's no software and no signs there will be any some day. So forget that part. The other one is "the hobby thing", which is really about fun from what you do. And that - at least for me - means other people who share your hobby and you can talk to them, meet them and mix your ideas. Unfortunately, there's no such thing, either. You see, there's at least one A1 here (out of 4 we know in the whole country) and at least one registered betatester. There are also some people who will eventually buy it, I think. So what's the problem, you'd probably ask. The problem is, some time ago we used to meet together as Amiga users. We used to talk, sometimes go to pub for a beer. Then I sold my Amiga and they got involved in the OS4+A1 thing. And things got worse. Our opinions differed so we disputed. I had views, they got angry because I was criticizing their Preciousss. And on, and on... A friend of mine was one of A1 fans, he was close to buying it. Then he went to see it and changed his mind. So he was told that he is not welcome at the monthly meetings. So I decided I'd not go, either. I don't mean the fault is only theirs but I simply don't understand how some discrepancy in views can differ people so strongly.

"So the RPG analogy is, unfortunately, way off. Doesn't compare at all."

I used what I knew. If I was a golf player, I'd speak about golfers' community ;). It does compare, although not in terms of money. But that's not important as I would consider buying an A1 or Pegasos if there were reasons I wrote above.

"If you have some friends with an AmigaOne who live close enough to visit,"

Well, I used to have... before they got A1s. Now I have not... Of course, I don't say every single A1 user is like those people I know. I hope not. But well, I'm talking about people here where I live and I don't plan to move abroad. So, no difference from my point of view.

"I'm just saying that we shouldn't be using the "but my hobby is cheaper than yours" argument, because NEITHER of these hobbies are the cheapest we could have."

Drinking yourself to death is cheaper. And you socialize, too ;).
Nah, just joking. So you're right, I'll stick to other things, hoping one day there'll be some computer-oriented activity to practice like the satisfaction old Classics gave me when I was young. Anyway, it was nice talking to you without fighting. Thanks for that.
