@Deaths_Head

Yes, good product by the look of it. I'm happy with the Mini as my living room Amiga (and light DPaint use under AMiNIMiga) but for those without an original Amiga this fills a niche no doubt.

Blatant lie.

But on that topic - how are “dabbling amiga sceners” supposed to make use of all the ARexx features of PPaint without buying a copy of “real” AmigaOS? What can you provide them?

A600GS is for a convenient "out of the box" experience.

I also build my own AmigaOS distro with my licensed Amiga software up to H2 1996, multiple Amiga Forever releases, Hyperion's AmigaOS 3.2, various ex-commercial software re-release as freeware or GPL'ed (e.g. Miami TCP, Opus Magellan 5 GPL), but I prefer a convenient "out of the box" experience.

I have purchased 3rd party Amiga apps for my Emu68 setup i.e. RDP software.

I do have an account with A-EON's AMIStore via AmigaOS 4.1 FE/Amiga Forever package.

I'm licensed for MS Office for Mac.

Many British Amiga magazines cover CDs has "big" commercial software on them. British Amiga magazines tried to shift the Amiga's user base into a non-gaming.

Besides Amiga games, technical drawing (e.g. IntroCAD and XCAD) and music notation (e.g. Deluxe Music 2) are my areas of interest since I spent many hours on them, hence I'm less interested in Final Writer and PPaint. OctaMED V8 is a maybe.

Hah, that’s funny!

I used to buy these UK mags every now and then as they were on sale here in Norway, but they were pricy. During summer of 1995 I went on interrail (with money earned from DPaint job on my A1200) and spent a few weeks in Germany and I discovered the German Amiga mags. Turned out that for the price of just a few UK mags, I could have year long subscription on any of the German ones. With the extra bonus of focus being on productivity and "DFÜ" instead of gaming, and a LOT less irrelevant ads (!!), which pretty much dominated UK mags. So I subscribed to them all, even the more games focused Amiga Joker. I vaguely recall reading about the possible powerpc based future of Amiga in an interview with a certain Ralph Schmidt while I was visiting the technical museum in Munich, someone I later learned was the one and same "laire" that I knew from IRC… fun times.

DPaint’s forte was simple animation, especially the whole "move" tool, which PPaint lacks. PPaint on the other hand, has a rich ARexx interface that to a degree can make up for the missing "move" tool, but that requires ARexx to be available.

So here’s a challenge for Andy Blues - make the ARexx interface of PPaint , OctaMED SS and other software available vis socket on the Linux side, allowing scripting with python, lua, regina and whatever on the Linux. Naturally, any advanced user do also want shell access to the Linux side (like the "pi" command on A314 or PiStorm) or Bebbo’s ssh (he’s also fond of whacky version strings btw).

@kolla

Between my brother and myself, we purchased at least Amiga Format and CU Amiga nearly every month until H2 1996. I also purchase PC Format (UK).

Sometimes, Amiga Power (UK) Amiga Action, Amiga Shopper (UK), Amiga Computing (UK), Australian Commodore and Amiga Review, Australian Personal Computing, Your Computer (Australia).

My high school's library is also stocked with monthly computer magazines.

My Dad introduced me to Amiga Action magazine since He plays sports games. There is an advantage when one of the parents also plays games and does accounts/back office on desktop computers. I'm a 2nd gen Amiga user/owner when my Dad is 1st gen Amiga user/owner.

My Dad's workmates from Sydney Waterboard have A2000s and play games on them.

@amigang

Yes! I also would like such a product based on that concept.

@amigakit

When will the A600GS be available in the U.S. market?

UPDATE: looks like it has landed https://amigakit.amiga.store/a600gs-p-91329.html?aksid=vnsarcpa8b8jhja8gg39e06shg¤cy=USD

I didn’t see that the last time I looked.
