I think if theres enough people wanting the new hardware for exclusive purposes, its a pretty solid idea...

I cant say I'd agree with new hardware just to have another daily computerbox9000

Btw - Arkhan, you still use and develop code for MSX? The MSX TurboR iis still a pretty neat system. Never caught on in the US, but nice specs.
Yeah, I do some game programming and music stuff on the MSX. I have a few MSX2+'s, and the Turbo R.

I wish it had caught on in the US. It is a damn fine 8-bit machine.

I'd agree with that last sentiment. The TI VDG used in the first machines was pretty advanced for its time and the specs on later machines continued to improve. Its hard to believe people wetre willing to put up with crap like the AppleII when this system was available.

Microsoft should have pushed this in the US. They could have given all the other 8-bit systems a run for their money.

Well there was a poll recently about what software folk would like to see for the Amiga and a new Browser came out on top, so that ones been answered.

And this thread basically has folk expressing their views on which kind of hardware should be the future for the Amiga, so that seems to be covered as well...

Great Franko,
So we need FPGA hardware emulating an enhanced Amiga to run an enhanced web browser like Firefox/Timberwolf?

That does it, I'm disregarding the opinions of other Amigans.

no foolin. Maybe if it had, a US home computer would have had good ports of the Japanese shooters from Konami.

The MSX2's VDP is pretty amazing. The system had some great RPGs that could have used a english version...

Not so much defensive but the joy of using an amiga to me is using an amiga.

So a new system that feels that way (Natami) would have an interest to me.

Im less interested in the OS in and of itself than the hardware. Not to piss on the hard work that's been put into it. I just dont feel the "gush" I do when I power on my 1200.

But that baby won't last forever.

I am watching AROS closely though, as well as the various FPGA projects.
