|Most people would have more fun buying an ultra-rare Mac Cube and running an OS4 emulator on it.|

|If all the bugs are worked out of the Articia, and the PIOS and audio work, will the MorphOS team port their operating system to it?|

Oh yes you are. This news item says so.
Maybe you need to get a 'boumese-samfacial official confirmation' before you'll see your error? Ie, it's an indisputable axiom if someone from a company that has something to do with the Amiga trademark claims (sorry, 'confirms') that the Teron Mini is the product you've been anticipating the most during these last ten years. Oh yeah, it's confirmed that it is an 'Amiga product' as well. :'D

Didn't they make a quick "port" of MorphOS to the A1 (in the matter of a day or two) just by replacing the firmware and then running MorphOS as-is? I suppose we haven't heard of it again because allowing the A1 to run MorphOS isn't such a bright idea if your pimary source of income is Pegasos sales.

That depends on why you would have bought a Pegasos. Because of Morphos, or the hardware? If people are buying for MorphOS, it doesn't really matter if the vehicle of delivery is a proprietary included-in-the-price board or a third party concern. If people are buying for the hardware, a port wouldn't make any sense anyway.

Bah, left off the last paragraph.
If the primary source of income is Pegasos sales, yet the reason people have for buying your product is for the included product "Morphos" indifferent to the Pegasos motherboard, then the wrong product is being marketed.

The A1 has Articia and my guess is that MorphOS will NEVER be rewritten to supports its many features.

|Nice, I might get one of these.......|
But will they sell a PCI riser card, or can one use standard miniITX PCI riser cards?
And what about CPU cards?
Anyway...it's great news(TM)

Will these be sold as a real, fully tested, consumer product with
full warranty, or is it still some "who knows, it might turn out that
it's not working properly, but hey, blame yourself for buying it"?

|It would be great to be there and buy one of those MicroA1-C boards :) I really would like to have one of those, or MircoA1-I.. |
But unfortunately I have to wait a bit longer :( I don't even have enough money for the travelling tickets :(
I hope that I have enough money when we are closer to christmas..

|Stellar Dreams? take one look at their website and ask yourself "Would i order from a company with a website like that?". Even scam companies have better sites.|

The look of the website is a personal thing, so what if you don't like the look of the website! What matters is that the products are there and the service is reliable. I know Sven quite well and he is someone you can trust to deliver what he says he can deliver, no broken promises there.

Articia is not broken, only the VIA on the earlybird XE. The new XE will not have the problem. Audio onboard works.
MOS on A1? It would be nice.
Looking forward for a reportage.
Gday to all.

Ok.. So It's the SAME Via chip on all of those boards.. It's suddenly magically 'fixed' itself on upcoming systems?

|Oh, we'll see. If the normal Linux drivers work on the microA1, then|
this must mean either that we were all wrong and the Articia isn't
broken, or that they have made a fixed revision of it.
But that's a pretty big *if*. :)
