    Interesting...

    I agree with the majority that it should be a real version of Amiga OS, and not one of the alternative OSs that have developed as a branch off from 3.1, such as AROS and MorphOS.

    I completely disagree that a new Amiga should be PPC as that CPU is dead... it has to be an intel Core i3 or better based CPU.

    I also disagree with the majority saying it should be an all in one keyboard. It would limit its expandability too much. A SFF tower would be best.

    Finally, I do agree that the AmigaOS developers and CUSA should combine and do something together into the future. Bring it all back together and remove the fragmentation.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    My above post was being idealistic, but we all know we shouldn't expect anything more than an attempt to cash in some more on the Commodore and Amiga brand names.

    I fully expect anything new they release using the name Amiga won't be the successor they are hinting at, but instead a low spec PC in a keyboard all-in-one case, running Windows/Linux and some form of Amiga emulator. And all for a very high price.

    If they do come good and create something special then I will eat my words and give them some respect, but they have to earn it.
