In reply to Comment 1 (Sven Harvey):
The Epic Marketing UK web site seems no longer to be active at all. When I try to go there I just get an error message. It would appear that the UK Epic has shut down completely, although I don't think there was an announcement. Another Amiga company/dealer that has quietly left the Amiga market is the U.S. dealer Safe Harbor. They are still very much in business but not in the Amiga business anymore. I remain cautiously optimistic. I wonder if Amiga Inc. really have the wherewithall to follow through on their promises...

I think they will be back for *AMI*. (If it going to be success, it will worth it. (AmigaOne is just one machine.)

Yep. The 040-based version has been around for some time (AFAIK, never seen one though), and features things like PCI-slots as standard. The 060-version should be out this fall, and feature also USB-slots and an ATI graphics card as standard. So, it's pretty cool stuff for a 68k-machine, but one must wonder why Epic thinks there's more market for Atari software that there is for Classic Amiga stuff. Is there?
