    I guess "A1" refers to the Eyetech AmigaOne SE/XE and the Micro-A1, not the PowerUP boards.

    Ah, better guess, but then we had nothing to do with that.
    And they seem to support Linux now.

    This whole idea hinges on the theory that there is so much animosity that they would try to prevent alternative OS' from running on the hardware.
    Is Acube assisting in the development of the X5000 firmware?
    It might have to involve the collusion of four different companies, Varysis, A-eon, Acube, and Hyperion.

    Still seems far fetched, but considering the history of that last firm...

    you guys can relax. there is no such restriction. and by the way, the idea that A-EON would ever do anything remotely like that is nonsense on stilts. their interest is selling hardware. they want any and every platform possible running on it.
