Can this be the start of something big?

Oh, wow!

I really loved my Amiga (which is now languishing in the loft). The graphics were simply stunning. I even used it for real work - I managed to get a free Fortran compiler for it but unfortunately it was written by a German so errors generated the message "Fehler!" followed by a load of gibberish (well, German). Oh, happy days...

I will watch and wait with interest.

Hmmm. not much info. there. I used an Amiga 500 between '90 and '96, and it was canny enough. It went on 'holiday' to the tip in '03.

I too loved my Amiga (I had a 1200), but unlike VoG™ I didn't put it in the loft, I gave it away.

I would like to see one of these new 'AIO' (All In One) machines - anyone from Commodore reading this, please note.

I use my 'Amiga Forever' emulator quite a few times each month on my PC. Plenty of free Classic Amiga Games to download and play and still plenty of gameplay in those old games.

I think the site needs a plug now... click here

If they are still going !

The only thing that let down the Amiga was the shallow upgrade path. Put in a memory upgrade of 8 mb and not 4 and you lost the PCMCIA slot.

It was a very versatile machine, it will have a fight on it's hands.

Good luck to them :-)
