@iggy

It's the message that should resonate, not the persona of the messenger.

If a business model depends entirely on one foundation it's doomed to fail.

@OlafS25

That's a convenient excuse and the one that's always used to defend Hyperion.

There are several ongoing initiatives in the Amiga market that have raised capital privately, publicly or through sweat equity.

If you can't find a way to make your core product viable it's time to move on.

+1 on both posts.
I don't understand the apparent business model either.

And isn't everyone tired of the pace of OS4 development?

Considering the lofty goal of OS4.2, it ought to be called OS5.
And I am 55, and concerned that I may not live long enough to see this already sold product delivered.

@iggy

At forty-four, I may not be concerned about my own expiration date, but I do tire of the waiting game. Over the past year of waiting for OS 4.1FE update for all systems (AKA the release date of the X5000), I've investigated alternatives to AmigaOS 4.x. I've looked into MorphOS, AROS, Haiku, Syllable, Elementary, and even FriendUP. Development speed seems to plague every alternative OS except for the Linux based ones. Back in 1998, when Gateway/Amiga announced that the new Amiga would be Linux-based, I hated the idea. Now, I see the wisdom Collas had. Oh well.

If we don't see OS4.1FE/X5000 by the end of 2016, I'll probably pick up a x86 machine with Elementary and some form of UAE. I'd probably avoid a lot of headaches and "digital angst." I'll still be able to use my old Amiga software and games, and keep up with browser technology (JIT javascript) that way.

Then better wait for user reviews and application benchmarks. I will buy Tabor once available and my intention is not to hide any of its deficiencies.

No.

I'm not convinced that there is one.

Did Hyperion even attend any of the Amiga 30 year anniversary events in any official capacity?

I still believe this is the way to go, while leaving open the opportunity to maintain the legacy OS in parallel.

With DragonFlyBSD + AROS you have a pretty solid foundation and both camps are actively moving forward.

Yes. Amsterdam, Peterborough and Nuess.

@ne_one

What could have been done if even possible is to choose a Drivers API compatible with Linux so you could use Linux drivers more or less directly.
Or, using a strip down linux kernel and do an Exec wrapper.

Seeing that drivers are an issue I'm wondering why not choose a motherboard that is using the same chips as the one of the X1000 to avoid drivers coding as much as possible.

@kamelit0

How do you "strip down" the Linux kernel?
My primary problem with using any part of a Linux based OS is the size of that hot mess.

Maybe by looking at what is done in the embedded Linux world.

@kamelit0

Possibly...but the embedded OS' I have used for the last thirty years are more compact than that.
And Linux, being a monolithic kernel, is not easily reduced in size.

A truly compact OS requires something a little more creative than a UNIX clone.

Of course they attended and sponsored the Amiga 30 event In Neuss.
They had a booth and were there in person with Costel Mincea, Timothy de Groote, Thomas Frieden, Hans-Jörg Frieden, Simon Vergauwen, Daniel Müßener and Olaf Barthel.

They did an Q&A session instead of a presentation but there were only a few questions asked...

But I think it's off-topic

They where indeed at Neuss, but the only thing new they showed was Gorky 17. A-Eon showed the X5000 running some demos but not AmigaOS 4 (at least not the desktop). They also showed the Tabor mother board (only the board, no software). MorphOS Team showed their OS running on the X5000.
