A thought on the Future of Amiga
So in my travels with things, a thought occurred to me.
I noticed that there are different groups (factions) inside the Amiga community. It appears that over time splits have developed and they are deep.
I've visited some of the other Amiga sites and they seem to be right or left wing for a lack of better terms. At the current rate of affairs, I suspect a statement I saw on here will be more true than not in the Future:
There will be more Amiga portals than Amiga users.
So in my brain a idea formed itself. What if the the Amiga.org community banded together and created our own path for an Amiga solution? Amongst us, we seem to be the most level headed and stable lot of the Amiga 'factions' in existence. We are not bogged down in the unfathomable mass of corporate double speak, lies and pure drivel that comes from the corporate end. Most of us seem to be flexible enough to love the Classic Amiga and its solution, while still encompassing the thought of something similar that is not quite the Amiga, but provides a solution close enough in reality.
I am not a programmer, or a businessman of any note. I am not an ad exec or CEO. I am a person who loves the Amiga, what it offered and want a solution to the dread of Windows Vista or being forced into something totally estoteric for my next OS/computer platform.
Perhaps I am making this sound easy. I know it is not. I know that it would be a monumentous undertaking. I think it would be worth it however, to preserve something we all love and enjoy. Something that was once great, and could easy be great again.
I am throwing this out as a suggestion. I know little about how to implement this. I would be willing to give it a try at the least.
Thought, comments and the like are welcome.
