Default Amiga Petition

This seems a bit old, possibly fruitless, and may have been seen here before (I have only just joined), but here is s alink for people to look at if they wish.

It also appears to be quite old too...

Looks like a website that was put up and forgotten.

I think I recall that site from long ago. I found a few referneces to 2002 on the site and on the petition page. You're probably correct in "aged and forgotten".

The site is as old as the problem it describes. I just haven't bothered to update it for quite a while. Nothing has changed, and that's the sad thing. :P

OK, there's been one change, but not for the better: PPC went and died. Though the sentiments about the harmful licensing scheme naturally apply regardless of CPU.

(Welcome to amiga.org, kenwood! Also, see my sig. Everyone else has, and grown tired of it. )

I guess that petition, like all online petitions, failed. Online petitions have never worked, but this one is extra stupid because it's someone with a bur in his butt trying to strongarm a private company. Look how that turned out. Nowhere, like it should have.

Anyhoo, are those people still around? Maybe they should put up another lame petition and we'll see where it gets them in another five years.

I agree, petitiononline has to be one of the most useless sites on the planet.

Absolutely right, we might aswell shut down the whole intarweb-thang. It's only commies and kiddy-rapists dwelling on there .

That website is an amiga equivalent of the "Sell OS X" want.

I agree with it though. Amigas proposal was ridiculous. TO sell the PPC Amiga they only had to do one thing. Sell the OS for standard PPC Hardware.

Yes, I mean Apple. It's a bit late now, they already went and screwed it up, but if, at the time, they had sold an amigaOS that ran on a standard unmodified Mac, then the Amiga community would have bloody BOUGHT IT!!!!!!!

Hell, how many of us wanted an Amiga portable over the years? We could have just installed it on an iBook! Instant G3/G4 Amiga with USB, Firewire, Ethernet, Wifi and monitor.

Same goes for the desktop,(iMac), workstation (PowerMac) and the server(Xserve.)

Entire existing product range just itching for Amiga hardware.

Oh well, too late.

All they could do now is invest in PA Semi and build a new range of multiprocessor Power Amigas from there, buuuut I oubt they have enough money for that. Certainly not to build enough of the Apple-Equivalent range that would be needed:

NoteMiga,
AmigaStation,
Amiga Server Edition (With corresponding Modified OS)

But hey, even that might not work. Too little Too late.

Give up and release the source code.
