"Facts remains though, that there are DMA problems with the Amiga One
hardware, and they are trying to solve them through software. Some
things cant even be fixed through hardcoding patches into the OS, so
they will also have to use additional hardware, like external IDE
As usual, any statement that contains the word "fact" is doubtful. Until an Amigaone is demonstrated working perfectly (onboard sound working, and IDE, SCSI, Ethernet, and PCI sound cards all working simultaneously without any faults), and those concerned explain what solved the problems, the whole question is uncertain.
The onboard sound may turn out to be a completely different problem from the rest.
IMO it will be a few months yet before anyone can talk about "facts".
In the meantime, both the Pegasos and the AmigaOne projects are making steady progress, not as fast as they would like, and not without problems, but definite progress. This is certainly a good thing.
