I'm delighted to hear from Amiga CEO Bill McEwen. I was concerned when we did not get a greeting from him in the Christmas edition of CAM when so many on the Amiga team were represented.

Thanks Bill for the courage, insight and perseverance to stay the course. I Can't imagine the difficulties you had to overcome to get the Amiga to this point.

I certainly don't want to diminish the efforts of Fleecy, EyeTech, Hyperion, Beta testers, developers and the Amiga Community as well.

After many attempts and false starts you were the one to get us here...Thanks Bill!

Bob C.

AG2 is the next set of Amiga technology. It will cover all aspects and areas required in order to create a successful core for future products, of which the desktop AmigaOS will be just one. Different products will make sure of a subset of the AG2 family depending on the requirements of the customer. Both the AmigaDE and the AmigaOS are two such customers.

Thanks Fleecy for your answer on DE. But boy I'm thick. I think I know what you are saying and then I loose it, especially with the customer bit.

Let me assume that AG2 is not just Toas and not just DE, nor just AmigaOS running on a Toas base. Is AG2 therefore like some sophisticated API, or a program environment.. or a... I'm getting lost again.

This is no accusation, I understand about the constraints of not letting the cat out of the bag. So this is how I would pose the problem of explanation:

One of the reasons I was so attracted to Amiga Inc in the first place was seeing a definite path forward, or as I would see it a new OS running on Toas base, an OS which is beyond AmigaOS as it stands, but retains something of it nonetheless (this would satisfy me).

The vision now is more complex and perhaps much more refined and integrated -- but people like me have much less tangable ideas to grasp and the whole thing vagues-out, which is not a good thing.

OS4 will give everybody breathing space, once the excitement and dust settles, I think the community needs some skillfully put-together outline of the future plan vis a vis AG2.

I say skillful because you won't want to give too much (if anything away) so it has to generally informative, cohesive and tangible and at the same time technically innocent -- a really big ask in otherwords.

I pose this as serious future need, we will need something to focus community interest beyond OS4 and allow us a greater sense of direction and cohesion -- a big AG2 document, carefully prepared and substantial in length and ideas would I think do the trick.

Best Wishes
