    X5000 & A1222 drivers??? I'm still waiting for a working driver for my X1000 on board Ethernet adapter! In addition to the mythical AmigaOS4.2, that I strongly doubt will ever be completed "as described when the X1000 was first released, or when my particular X1000 was produced and sold to me".

    As much as I like Trevor and Matthew at A-Eon, I think they have a responsibility to complete a working driver for the X1000's on board Ethernet adapter, before moving on to their later motherboard designs.


    I used to like them, before experiencing their products.

    SAM460 does not have a DMA for onbaord SATA even today in AmigaOS driver.
    I feel your x1000 anger, as I have one. Add Timberwolf and LibreOffice to the story,
    as well as software AEON licensed (Octamed, ImageFX ...) but hasnt even put to sale.

    Sadly, same thing happens again with x5000 net/audio drivers upon release, and seems A1222 is delayed so long maybe to be first fully supported after SAM440 and A1 XEs.

    And yet so far I have paid OS 4.1 beta with x1000, prepaid OS 4.2, purchased OS 4.1 Final and Enhancer, not to mention OS4 Classic and OS4 SAM440/460 that I do own also.

    Such company deserves class lawsuit by owners, as delivering unfinished products (in software terms).

    But, someties, corporate fights do their own magic. If there werent nice and taleneted people like porting Tower 57 or AmiKit package, Apollo Team, MorphOS team, some strange AROS experiments like Vision and AEROS etc. magic would be long gone. Cloanto is a bit all around but retro preservation package.

    What audio drivers? The Cyrus Plus has no onboard audio hardware.

    > seems A1222 is [...] maybe to be [...] fully supported

    2nd CPU core?

    My bad. I believe its onboard SATA drivers making quite a hell this time,
    CD0: disappearing and such (if not fixed by magic Steven meanwhile)

    Even the single core with SPE gives trouble >:-)

    I often wonder why they design/ship x1000,x5000 and A1222 dual core
    as OS4 dream machines, instead of going high frequency single core ...

    Back to topic: It would be good if legal cases would clean up things,
    but they usually dont, at least in Amigaland. Only possible victim
    is announced "Hyperion OS 3.1+" and licensing for emulation/Androids.

    X1000:
    There has never been a single-core PA6T on the market.

    X5000:
    Price difference between dual-core P5020 and single-core P5010 is about 42 USD, which is less than 3% of total board price. And both are 2.0 GHz max.

    A1222:
    Price difference between dual-core P1022 and single-core P1013 is about 6 USD, which is less than 2% of total board price. And both are 1.2 GHz max.

    New lawsuit filed

    #6


    "etal" is used to shorten the title of a suit, not lengthen it, ergo the usage of the term on the defendants side makes sense.

    Does anyone have a theory on who "etal" is on the plaintiff side? I don't believe they would intentionally add that to the plaintiff side of the suit title without point.
