Poor Ai. If only they had used the correct video format, then there would be no confusion.

Even if thing turns good for Amiga... we will pay these AMiga Inc errors/jokes for a loooooong time.

Stop this crap and work on Hyperion to getting OS4 on more hardware!

Actually a number of threads about him got killed off really quickly in the past with the reason cited that he is a member and based on the content of what was being said about a fellow member. His member id has zero posts, but Tomazkid showed which one it was once when people asked why such threads were getting removed. Luckily it seems to occur less these days (thread removals). But the board does consider Bill a member as last explained.

People.

We have seen this before. With Amiga DE/Amiga Anywhere. It will probably go the same way as DE/AA. Don't get absorbed by the minimal hype.

WE HAVE ALL SEEN IT BEFORE.

And soon, it will include new Amiga hardware, according to McEwen. It will be Power PC-based, and run a new version of the Amiga operating system – “an OS that can do everything that Windows can do in 1.2MB,” he said.


it's QNX?

The OS in one floppy?

Watching that, I feel like some one is trying to sell me a time-share in Florida.

I can have the "same experience"on any platform. That's about the last thing I want.... generic.

It's not the biggest product we could have imagined, but a viable revenue stream has to start somewhere.


If they had a clue at all, they could of had revenue by rejuvinating an A1200 product with OS3.9 years ago. Taking this long for such a "tinker toy" is just embarssing and unlikely to generate any thing more than sneers and snickers.

Perhaps if they can follow up with some thing more ambitous or exciting, but they haven't poven they're capable of that.... ever.

@thread

Notice how we've really had to dig and dig to get info about this new OS from Amiga Inc? Why arent they gift wrapping the details for us? i.e. presenting us with a press release or a website with information, features, screenshots, etc?

@-Sam-

Fran Dramis really exists:

This guy seems to be an honest man.


Please send me all the questions (serious ones) you have about Amiga Inc.

I will try to forward them to Dramis


Thanks

Birbo

Give it a rest already. You are saying the same things about Dramis that we all said about Garry Hare all those years ago. And look what happened to him.

What an unusual notation!

Ok tonyw

Make a better proposal.

I will write to Fran Dramis. If you give me some inputs, you will have the possibility to get some answers.

Otherwise you don't.
