I hope a amiga like case will be available for this board. I think we need this for a good marketing.

@opi

I would expect that if they have a license either approved or in the works, then they'll announce it at the BB show later this month. You leave big news like that for shows, and that would be the biggest AmigaOS-related news of the year - an approved alternate hardware supplier at last.

@AmigaPapst

The Prometheus board would be a great match for the Fantasy case.

Wonder how it got there

Really offtopic.

This is decided so no complains Dad!
(In respect of Jay Miner offcourse)

Hope the troika is good and can run OS4 really fast.

Well, if they ever get a licence it means that there is some sort of discrimination going in the air as Acill wasn't even able to *get in touch* with the representatives... And, correct me if I'm wrong, but Amiga/Hyperion/Whoever is responsible for that are not really in position of doing such thing. The potential of seeing your userbase doubled for free is really important: where are you going if you don't take such opportunity (for whatever stupid reason you may have) ?

Where would be Apple today if they had refused Microsoft's cash ? Apple would be history.

Leo.

@opi

I guess, they will pay Hyperion to do it, if it happens.
But AFAIR, this cost wasn't mentioned by steady when enumerating costs ..
BB will tell..

Well from what has been discussed in the past on other forums here, the price of $500 USD has been mooted. (projected price)
