We are EXCELLENT at making sexy webpages but failing miserably at making any hardware come true. SAM doesn't interest me, PV doesn't interest me, Amy05 doesn't interest me, OS 4.0 doesn't interest me, OS 5.0 doesn't interest me, ANYTHING RELATED TO ANY AMIGA either hard or software after classic and OS 3.x doesn't interest me.

THE ONLY TIME IT INTERESTS me is when I see it in my own very EYES!!!!! Only the eys speak, not the mouth, not the finger, not the ears that listen, and not anything else. JUST the eyes speak..BECAUSE eyes NEVER tell lies.

While I think you could've worded your post in a more appropriate way, the sentiment is most certainly true. We have yet to see anything materialise that has an OS4 lisence, and according to quite a recent post made by ssolie here that might not happen at all.

COMPLAINING LOUDLY WILL NOT MAKE HARDWARE MATERIALIZE ANY FASTER.

But you know, it does feel kinda good.


PLEASE ITALIAN AMIGANS MAKE ME SOME HARDWARE!! NOW!!

Really, why post any of this? It amazes me - every time any piece of hardware is mentioned, at least one person will feel the need to dramatically declare their heartfelt and undying disinterest in it.

If you are only interested in things you can examine with your eyes (but not with your fingers, mouth or ears), then there is nothing here in this topic for you so why are you here?

I for one look forward to any new HW coming on the scene as it presents an opportunity. Opportunities are not always exploited but that makes them no less exciting to those with an interest in the future.

@unclecurio

I complete agree whit you about foods comment, it’s useless to complain about product that’s not even produced in numbers, any if the specification of the product do not make you jump for joy, then make the product is designed for some one else, so way complain.

Whoever made this site should drag it back to the drawing board (uh, workbench):

If the Samantha team can't get a Amiga license, you could always rename AmigaOS into SamOS

Hehe! Lotsa errors there!

Incidentally, going to the Italian part of the site and selecting a babel-fish translation (from the Yahoo toolbar installed on Firefox), I find it translates most of the page, but leaves the scrolling news stuff on the left side of the page untranslated... No biggy, I suppose, though.

It's a very good effort.

I saw the English version first and it reminded me of Troika on day 1.

Then I saw the Italian site - splendid!

I think it's the most professional Amiga site out there. The only other decent ones are OS4 and Genesi. There are many that look o.k. and just do the job - Amigakit, this one, Individual. Also there are many, many that look pants and I am actually embarrassed to view them in public!

I hope the hardware and OS4 port gets done soon!

(I can see there are many people who like to knock on the head of Helgis for his exuberant enthusiasm. But it seems there are other people to blame as for adding to rumors / mystery / secrecy ... )

Are you warming up the crowd before the show ?


Edit: Added a link to the forum thread I was refering to (as an example).

Don't EVER believe your eyes when they start to speak. Your psychanalist will explain you why.
