I think X1000 is waaaay overpriced
It's insane, as simple as that.
And so are the people buying it.Quote:
and has its weaknesses.
It has *no strengths* that matches its price.Quote:
the X1000 is probably the fastest ppc Amiga yet.
Yes probably, a shame otherwise, but MorphOS remains the fastest "Amiga" OS, and the 2GHz G4 PowerMac "Amiga" mentioned above probably doesn't come that much behind actually!
(Note how I use the quotation marked "Amiga" above to describe something that isn't branded Amiga, just like Trevor Dickinson does!
But the numbers presented so far make me feel the X1000 will have a pretty hard time once G5 support will come.
Based on the communications I have seen from the MorphOS Team on this issue, a migration to a different architecture (x86 or ARM) seems more probable than G5 support...
MorphOS is Amiga done right!
MorphOS NG will be AROS done right!
