It is not official. But they have missed Q2 and summer vacation season in Europe is beginning now. If they can start beta testing with beta testers in August/September they could make it to early 2012. I dont see how they could get it out faster than that.

Would this new Freescale chip make a capable desktop processor? Does anyone with expertise in this area know?

It seems my tongue-in-cheek comment is getting quite serious.
But yes, I do see good things happening in amiga land, in all camps MOS, AROS, OS4, classic OS, FPGA,... Most of the time it's not done by the people who make the most noise on the forums though.

greets,
Staf.

Btw when I read it again I only see AROS developer commenting OS4 and X1000... :-) what Piru wrote was about posting opinions and speculations as news.

Ah, ok. To be honest neither of us really have a clue as we don't know what state the OS completion for the X1000 is in, how many beta-testers there are, etc. I've worked on large projects where beta-testing has taken from a couple of weeks to months. "Pin the tail on the donkey" time! :-)

C'mon, it was *one* line in a news item and anybody could spot that it was an opinion rather than a hard-nosed fact. Mountains. molehills...

??? Maybe I'm going insane but I thought I made a tongue-in-cheek comment about Piru and his intimate relationship with OS4/X1000 but did not say anything about OS4/X1000 itself.
