@pvanni

you simply do not know. Neither do I. Whatever that board will run, we'll know tomorrow.
Now, in the italian forum one of the guys involved in the project posted three pink ribbons... for the non-italian readers this is an italian tradition: whenever a baby comes to life his/her parents hang a ribbon out of the door: pink for daughters, blue for sons. It sounds like a big surprise to me... (Samantha, Moana and Bridgette ).

I have a good feeling about this! Perhaps our long wait will soon be over? I really wish I was able to speak the language and could fly over to visit my extended family in Italy. Then I could go to the show!

It's done like this:


That is a colon ':' followed by the word 'dance' and it really isn't that difficult to use correctly.

I doubt you can get a licence to run OS4 unless the board is finished and has been approved by AI.
That can't be a quick process. (lawyers, ya know)

We don't know what stage of development these boards are at. I just hope they really show up so people can get a look.

I'm not a HW expert. I wouldn't be able to judge anything about a board just by looking at it.

When I see OS4 running on these boards, give me a ring!

I hope everyone has a great time at the convention! Wish I could go!

come back and tell us what happened!

No, that looks like a reply posted by you. :)
But as one of the AW.net Users I thank you for the insightful commentary anyway.

(BTW, I don't think my comment qualified as a "rant". It was short, on-topic and to the point, just like your own thought-provoking "Good news!" oneliners everytime there's yet another Salvation In Two More Weeks announcement. At least I wasn't claiming to speak for more people than myself. ;))

Oh Seehund,

"Two More Weeks" is so yesterday; now we're at 9 hrs. and 40 minutes (I think )!



-- edit, subtracted 1 more hour, and added 12.
-- edit Fi-na-lly! (Darn those time zones.)

@Seehund

Want to know of a *really* short and to the point statement? Here:

And of course, you're right. A statement like "Good news!" surely is "thought-provoking"... I'm sorry Seehund but complaints about "too upbeat" statements really never was much of an argument for anything. Complaints of constantly repeated and already debated a million times arguments on the other hand...

Well, it's related to the extent that it's a possible hardware platform for AmigaOS4 demonstraded on an Amiga related computer fair. Wether it will actually hit the market and run AmigaOS4 remains to be seen.
