The article was translated for AmigaWorld.net and the ACGGBG from the Swedish magazine DatorMagazin, issue no 6/2003. The article covers the recent AmiGBG show, where Eyetech's Alan Redhouse held an extensive AmigaOne/AmigaOS4 speech.

The article itself isn't old news, it came out just a couple of weeks ago.
Takes a while to come up with the idea, do translation and get permission to post it. I find it interesting that a mainly non-amiga magazine takes the time to cover a show like this. :)

Wow. They managed to get just about every single thing they mentioned totally wrong.

"THE AMIGA IS NOT DEAD AND BURIED. IT'S JUST HIBERNATING."

Do they think someone's making a new Amiga, or have they been hibernating themselves since, what, 1994?

"... the english company Eyetech is one of the people involved in the process of making a new Amiga platform."

*giggle* Who made them think up all this crap?

"... the little problem of financing the development, where they had already spent some 5 Million USD during the 18 months long development of Amiga OS4,"

ROTFL!

"... problems getting specifications out of Motorola that has developed the G3 and G4 processors which the AmigaOne is based on."

??????
Oh. Now I see. They actually believed Alan Redhouse. Morons.

"... his Eyetech wants to reach 20 or 30 thousand users in order for the project not to be an economic flop and thereby the end of the AmigaOne."

The Terons will mainly have the same audience as they've always had. Hardware developers, using Linux, until they're too outdated even for them. A few of us AmigaOS lunatics are irrelevant (and AmigaOS is of course f*cked as long as it's tied to only whatever Eyetech can get their mitts on to sell to AmigaOS users).

"He also said that another good thing about the AmigaOne is that linux runs on it."

LOL! Now that's just AMAZING, right? Who would've expected a POP mobo that's always been running Linux to... erm... continue to run Linux?
Well, unfortunately I can see Alan Redhouse saying that's "another good thing".

Well...I have to say at least someone in the amiga camp knows how to market. :)

After all...every..and I mean every press release I've read about any new system has been 90 percent bullshit.

>haha, yeah right, you write a magazine consisting of 164 pages, then :)

2% index
3% reprinted stuff
5% news real,
20% copy & past from game coverage from some software firms
30% copy & past some software coverage from some software firms
20% copy & past some hardware coverage from some hardware firms
5% FAQ

the remaining 15% will be blank pages, reader comments and advertisement.

That means I do not need to write more then 15% thatís about 25 pages
( index + news + faq and the reprinted stuff )

Iím not taking about the magazine, Iím taking about the coverage of the event.

The time it takes to get the entire magazine printed and distributed is also the time it takes to get the article printed and distributed. Writing the article fast as lightning would still not get the Magazine printed and distributed any faster. Furthermore, please don't dismiss DMZ (DatorMagazin) as just an other cheap "ad-mag" before you've read it yourself. In my opinion, it's THE best computer magazine in Sweden and I've been reading it since I got my first Amiga1000 (yes, it used to cover the Amiga as well back then).
