Eyetech replied to Bill Buck and Raquel Velasco's recent posting in the AmigaOne group at Yahoo. This is a repost under my name, since the original poster asked for the article to be removed. I don't agree with the view that this message should be kept off ANN since it is an interesting read and presents, in a way, the other side of the story; but after some consideration decided to respect the original poster's wish to have his posting and name removed, and opted to create a duplicate.
I'm afraid Buck has exceeded even his usual level of bullshit and innuendo on this one.

My take on this:

Our announcement of the G4 availability and pricing, and of the (solved) Articia problem at the WoA SE was not what he expected. Since then we have been innundated for dealership agreements from ex-Amiga dealers who have (and their customers have) good memories of the Amiga OS and a growing hatred of Windows. The polls, such as they, are show that the A1-XE G4 is by far the most popular PPC platform for the Amiga community and this must also have been a bit of a shock. (Is it also a coincidence that we've been the recipients of an intense, targeted virus campaign since then, I wonder?)

Meanwhile Hyperions work on PPCBoot and linux has allowed the Teron reference boards to get to a level where they can be usefully sold in the Linux Market. As most on this list will know we have the rights to distribute these boards in Europe and now Terrasoft do in the US. (We also have distribution rights on the Teron based designs for the Amiga marker worldwide). This has knackered Thendics plans for world domination of the PPC Linux market.

Reading between the lines it seems that they are prepared to drop MorphOS altogether if they can get their hands on OS4 to at least salvage something. Buck plans to do this by suing Amiga Inc (for what?) and bribing us to abandon the AmigaOne and Hyperion to port OS4 to the pegasos hardware . Sorry, thats not on. You can only have sensible business arrangements with people who are trustworthy and behave with integrity. There are plenty of instances (which are inappropriate to reveal here) where these principles have been completely abandoned on his side.

On their so-called relationship with MAI, we/hyperion have done more to help MAI get the Teron design to the linux market than ever bplan have, alltough I don't doubt that Gerald Carda made an important contribution to identifying the Articia bug - I've every respect for him as a hardware engineer.

As far as Thendic making their own boards is concerned thats a complete joke. Its a matter of public record that Thendic-France incorporated as a one-man company with the minimum 7500 euros of capital. Thendic, like us and MAI do not actually make anything themselves, manufacture is all subcontracted. In our case its to a Tiawanese specialist, in Thendic's its to DCE. Based on our past experience of quality assurance and after sales service from DCE I personally would never buy any DCE manufactured products for resale again.

Well you did ask

Alan

You think? Do you really believe that if one company sells, say, 200 units of their product, support and development is gonna continue?
Unless you have money to throw away you do care about the number of units sold as much as anyone else.

Motorola didn't abandon 68k.
68k was ALWAYS an embeeded CPU. That's how the market was. You had 68k for embedded, RISC for workstation, and hyped x86 like the dx2, dx4 etc. for PCs.
Motorola adopted PowerPC because it made a better embedded CPU.
Motorola to this day still supports 68k with 68k boards and toolkits, and now Coldfire.
Motorola was never in the dekstop market. Also Amiga was never a market to give a rat's ass about as far as CPU development goes.

Then you've not even bothered to read the messages posted here over the past few days.
The April chip fixes the problems of the Artica-S, it does not replace the Artica-S itself. Likely, April is little more than a CPID that happens to fix some bus mastering or glue logic issues that tend to end up in northbridges. I know that I would have loved such a fix for my VIA northbridge that couldn't run Quake3 on a top-end Athlon due to this bug.
It is a seperate chip, so get over yourself.

True, but then it's not in the same league as any other x86 chip.
C't 23/2002 page 114 has a x86 comparison table and it shows the VIA 1GHz cannot
keep up with P3-1GHz, e.g. 48 vs. 96 in BAPCo SYSmark2002 or 65 vs. 175 in some

You obviously have no clue and think a nice Boingball label makes a standard.
It does not.
Beside standard x86 cards, Pegasos can also use OpenFirmware cards, is that
enough standard for you? It has a bunch of standard chips and standard busses
on a standard formfactor motherboard with a standard Slot1 and is standard
POP compatible afaik.

Great progress to boot a raw kernel - been there, done that with MOS in summer 2001.
>Amiga Inc has not tried to force anyone to buy their AmigaOne or OS4.
They force anyone to implement their naughty "copyprotection" dongle and pose unusual
prerequirements for OS4 licenses, because they are the mighty "the name" company. :-P

RISC hype came only in the 90s, my dear. Stop rewriting history, the 68k has
been a very successful CPU inside Amiga, Atari and Mac - I wouldn't call a

Untrue also, they even had their own commercial CHRP Viper board in 1997.

However this misses the point. The 68k CPU wasn't DESIGNED for such applications, neither was the G4.

You mean this - http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/54/28245.html - chip?
Really, the 750CX* line seems to compete quite favorably with the Via C3 (meaning, it should wipe it over the floor at similar heat dissipations), and drawing lines between "embedded" and "desktop" don't make much sense in this day and age. (Is an "embedded" 486 the same as a H8 or such thing? People are quite happily putting K6-2s, Pentium #s, and probably even Athlons by now into "embedded" systems; it's just that the average "embedded" system now requires a dedicated AC system with it. ;) - No offense to those designing real 'embedded' hardware, of course.)
Moto wanted to sell chips; Apple killed most of the market, IBM could- and as we're seeing, can- carry the rest, and the G3/G4 were good compromises between "blazing speed" and "might survive without a heatsink the size of your face" - the sort of compromise that has people considering C3s and Transmetas in the first place.
Unfortunately, the "runs vaguely cool" market that PowerPC hits is about to be taken on by Intel's Banias and Transmeta's new chip- the 970 will have stiff competition, but hopefully not the scaling problems that seem to have plagued the earlier chips. (Of course, that's what was said around the G4 launch, no?)

Sigh...
Nobody has said the 970 is designed to be used for portables. Also the only thing worse than comparing two puffs of vapour to one puff of vapour is comparing two puffs of vapour to something already available.
Intel is hyperriffic. Remember them touting mobility pentium? What a joke, all it managed to do was literally burn a man's penis! (the penis has no heat sensitive nerve endings, just to warn you Dell laptop owners). Transmetta was even worse! Man what hype! Everybody was expecting the second comming and all they got was the slowest CPU ever to be put in a subnotebook.
IBM on the other hand tend to be conservative with their announcements. They cater to a different audience. You know, enterprise people who aren't necessarily looking to play Quake at 3000fps.

There are four big advantage for Pegasos in the roundUp.
1) The Pegasos Board is the better both in PCB that connectors. AmigaOne-Terox have an old style mb concept with a lot of space not used and a mediocre Pcb implementation. Pegasos is small and "integrated" like modern Mobos require to be. Then it support Irda and Firewire natively while the AmigaOne doesn't have it.
2) The price is lower (Vesalia sell it at 100 $ less then the AmigaOne, both with a G3 600), considered also the fact that on Pegasos the Cpu is not soldered while on AmigaOne that you can buy in December it still remain soldered.
3) AmigaOne is actually only a mediocre LinuxPPC machine ... Pegasos has got a really good Os like MorphOS that is capable to do more AmigaLike things.

There are four reasons not to buy a Pegasos -
1. DCE were involved.
2. Bill Buck is involved. No disrespect intended, but the whole Viscorp fiasco is still fresh in people's minds. Both Carl Saseranch (spelling?) and Jason Compton are respected in the community - and has some bad things to say about your previous dealings...
3. Pegasos seemed more relevant when all we had for a choice was a G3 AmigaOne. Now that you can get a G4 - there's no point.
4. Morphos (whilst a great technical feat) is NOT AmigaOS 4. For the last couple of years we've had all these idiots trying to ram Linux, BE-OS, QNX & AmigaDE down our throats when all we've really wanted is an updated AMIGA OS that runs natively on faster architecture. I don't care how good these other OS's are. IF I wanted to run them I would install them on my PC. I want AmigaOS 4/5 etc
I don't want to hear about how 'Amiga like' these other OS's are - NOT intersted. And guess what, the silent majority agree.

Wow Eva, whats a "Linux PPC machine"? Is this some bit of revolutionary hardware
design that we are so far previously unaware of?
Linux is an operating system.
AmigaONE is hardware.
If you are going to make statements like "Mediocre Linux PPC machine" you need to
say why the AmigaONE ( that runs LinuxPPC ( and according to Bill Buck
MorphOS ) ) is mediocre and Pegasos isn't.
This is what I think of as mudslinging, you attach a negative adjective to
something you want to smear every time you say it but never justify it. You are
either trolling for flames ( sigh like we need them ) or you are hoping that
someone will see your comment and say "oh the AmigaONE, isnt that a mediocre LinuxPPC
machine?" because yes a good percentage of the population is that thick.
I'd really like to see an end to stuff like this, and "Hype-OS", "Amino" etc
being used in a derogatory fashion because it doesn't help the debate.
In fact I think Bill Buck has made a strategic mistake, opening a front against
LinuxPPC vendors ( surely Seehund needs to pop in here and point out what he
has said all along about free market and the more linux ppc vendors we have
the more potential platforms for AmigaOS4 and MorphOS? ) because look at Strobes
reaction. Lots of subjective heat against LinuxPPC.
It's just one big turn off. :-(

"3) AmigaOne is actually only a mediocre LinuxPPC machine ... Pegasos has got a really good Os like MorphOS that is capable to do more AmigaLike things."
You're saying that an AmigaLike OS is better then AmigaOS, why you're still here is beyond me...
see comment 191, line 4 it shows it all

Just my experience with my AmigaONE up till now.
I have tried LinuxPPC (debian) and i'm NOT an expert on this (right OleGil?:))
i consider it added value as a)it has apps which AmigaOS won't have (yet). I like Ibrowse but if i cannot open a site i use Mozilla on the Aone. So i have two machines in one. If QUake2 is a bit slow i play it on the Aone. If a movies is to slow i play it on the Aone. AONE=FUN ! :)
About the DMA bug -> ide=nodma cures a lot, i know it's not ideal but ALL HW has bugs and i'm sure any big bugs that MIGHT be in the AOne I have will not be there in future designs. But i'm happy with the one I have now :)

Non standardized hardware.

Eh? In what way do you find the pegasos in any via different from the eyetech version of a teron board in terms of industrial standards? Both have similar specs and yes, agp, usb etc. are standardized. Maybe you ought to get your facts straight before posting such an argument.
Same goes for what you claim of morphOS to be: "Just a bunch of patches" While you might be right in that it does allow for "patches" like mui to be used, it doesen't mean the ambient of mos is made of patches. In either case even if it were so, the same thing applies to os4 with amidock, visualprefs, birdie etc. all just put together to the package so that you won't need to download them separately from aminet when you buy your copy of the os.

>>What, where you sleeping? Alan's post was the answer to Thendic's bull
That's coz I hadn't read it yet, just alan's response. My next step is probably to attack thendic's marketing after reading their original post.
And yes, when your customers are measured in mere thousands, even one customer less is something you shouldn't want to have.

About what are you actually speaking? About the AmigaOne? I thought there is no
DMA bug?
