I like the new website design.

At this moment works fine for the purpose for which was conceived.
It's the moment to spot on that the fact that a new Amiga Computer is coming with the OS4 operating system in it. Moreover, would be nice to put on the web site more features that recall the OS4 operating system, like Ram disk, screens (screen drag too) and other nice features. This could attract people that doesn't know what Amiga OS4 actually is.

I can say that it is easy to use, because it is. Let's take a quick look. The first thing you're likely to notice is "A-EON" at the top. Great, we're in the right place. Next you'll probably notice "Amigaone X1000. Coming Summer 2010" with a button under it that says "register for updates." That's pretty intuitive, and very important too, for something that's coming soon. Because the web page is free of clutter, there's nothing to distract you from the tab in the bottom right hand corner with a boing-ball and the word "click" on it. Hmmm, click; okay, I will. Out slides a dock that clearly resembles Amidock in Amiga OS. If you're not an Amiga OS enthusiast, you'll recognize it as a menu.

"Media," "X1000," "Links," and "News." I'm interested in this X1000 thing, so let's click on it. Up pops a window that clearly looks like an Amiga OS 4 window with text inside it. You don't have to be an Amiga OS user to know what to do with that.

Following standard convention, there's a copyright notice at the bottom of the window, and a clickable contact email address.

I didn't have to think to do any of this. It was easy.

While that would be nice for us, for people who aren't familiar with the system it would only distract them from what's important. It's the lack of distractions in the main part of the page that draws your eyes to the dock tab at the bottom right. Clutter up the screen, and you risk having newcomers leave because they missed the dock tab and didn't know what to do next.

t's a LOT better than the original teaser website with it's weird colour schemes! It's definitely a 'work in progress' and will no doubt get better. But it really is great to get a feel for the AOS 4.x style windows and I'm sure ex-Amigans will enjoy the novelty! The limited information available is interestingly positioned in that fun 'BoingBall' click-out bar and the information is well presented and concise. Also, it allows A-EON to collect contact information to send out email updates! The website does everything they NEED it to right now! Until the product is finalised for release little else is required. I see no reason for over-hyping this product until they have a fixed release date! The Website show that work is progressing and that this is a serious product. I also like the way the information is written. It is almost as if A-EON is building itself a Company Personality that is easy going, technically well informed but with an over ruling sense of fun and with a focus on computers as a fun hobby rather than an industrial work horse. Not since the 'ClickBoom' woman have I enjoyed the presentation as much as the message


Thank you I couldn't have said it better myself. The website is obviously not the finished product but meant as a fun stopgap while we concentrate on the more important task of producing the hardware. As I said previously you can't please everyone but as long as most Amigans enjoy the website experience then IMHO it's job well done.

In that case a simple flashing or blinking button could solve this problem.

Love the site, very original (those OS4 draggable and resizable windows are very cool).
Can't wait for the full unveiling!

I really don't want to sound like a blue troll, but I probably will do now.

Is it just me or is this new site really just crap; design, concept and content wise? Maybe that's the idea behind it; make it look really ugly and let it be completely useless and pointless to get some attention?

It looks to me like someone tried to put every silly effect he/she could find on the internet together to 'A Something'. It just doesn't work out, IMHO.

regards,
tokai

@TrevorDick

I'd just like to add my voice to the like tally. I saw this a a fun teaser with its OS4 styling. It made me smile when the first window came up and made me think A-EON are people who are about fun and enjoyment of computing. I did not see this as the final corporate face of A-EON that will be in place when the X1000 is shipping and all information is available. I also had no trouble registering with Firefox 3 and Karmic and had no problems navigating the site and I liked the dock like control.
I also prefer emails for information predominately as they are easy to read at work. I don't currently subscribe to any RSS feeds and getting an email is just way easier for me.
I am very much looking to getting an X1000 when released and being able to run OS4.

By the way, I would love a dock in OS 4 for X1000 that looks like the "While you are waiting" dock on the web site.


I have to agree would love this type of feature/dock on the AmigaOS.

Also on the whole website issue I can see where some people are coming from, but to me its a fun grate site and besides there nothing stopping you from making a amiga web site.

In fact I got so fed up with the fact that amiga.com had so little info on what was going on (now dead!) and the fact that Hyperion and Acube coverage of AmigaOS on there web site is very limiting I would take it on my self to develop my own site, well update my old AmigaNG site, I decided not to really worry about it working on Amiga computers and just try and target everyone else at the same time I done this to improve my web skill because I have never done a CSS site before and it taking a while to get to grips with, the site is still in development and doesn't quite work on internet explorer but I'm working on.

No its not just you and if you read the rest of this thread you would see that. Still you would also see you are in the minority too, as I and most people who have expressed an opinion seemed to have liked it and seen it as a bit of fun. Perhaps you don't like fun or don't find OS4 fun? Ah well we can not all like everything.
Still you can just say you don't like it and explain why. Saying it's crap, ugly, useless etc. does indeed make you sound like troll. Saying things like I found it unintuitive to use due to the placement of X or I thought the colours used in A & B did not go together and would have looked better with colours U & V. This would make you sound like someone who had something real to say rather than someone who wants to say something negative but can't even be bothered to think of something negative to say.

@TheBlueTrolls

Do you honestly think jumping in to every thread just to complain about the state of everything OS4 is going to cause people to dump OS4 and come over to the blue side? I can honestly say that with the examples of the sort of behaviour from the blue camp lately I lost any interest I would have had with trying MorphOS. Now I am sure there may well be many reasonable people in the MorphOS camp but I don't see them posting reasonable comments here. All I see is every MorphOS user would rather drive people away from the Amigaish platforms rather than have them use OS4. This is very sad for MorphOS and I think says a lot for that platform. Not that long ago it would be MorphOS is better because we have this or this is faster or looks better. Now we just get this website looks ugly or OS4 devs must be lazy. Has MorphOS really got nothing left to boast about? That is indeed sad. Ah well guess I'll not be missing out by not trying it if it gets ported to the X1000.
