Nothing wrong with them really. It's more of a Amiga-own-identity-feeling kind of thing.

Problem is that every country has its own layout so making like 20 keyboards for each country makes no economical sence.

I believe German and US keymaps and layouts are the most commonly used, among Amiga users. So IMO there isn't a big obstacle here, so only a minority of users would need to familiarize themselves with German or US layouts if only such keyboards would be manufactured.

I know many people here in the Netherlands, who use a German keyboard layout, meanwhile using a US layout is common in my country.

Shortly after Amithlon had been released someone asked Cherry about
it, and the result was that it would only stay affordable if
more than 10000 units were produced.

NO chance :-x

No you don't - just stick your Amiga m/b upside down in your PC case - and use PCI and Zorro/clockport :-D :-D

Kronos, he meant funder of the Pegasos/MorphOS project, not funder of the Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper board project.

I wouldn't mind if Thendic was though, as long as I will be able to use the board for the AmigaOne I intend to buy, I will be happy. :-)

This sounds like one way cool board - I'm definitely getting one (sid tunes! woohoo!), and I might even get an A4000 keyboard for the 'complete' amiga feel :-D (my current Amy is an A1200, so I can't exactly use *it's* keyboard).

Edit: Hmmm, I wonder if the attached keyboard will behave exactly like an AT keyboard (as in pressing 'Del' to enter the BIOS setup), or if it will need drivers?

This product is good on so many levels, someone should give the makers an award, or even dedicate a day to them. :-D

I was just pondering the other day what it would be like to read Amiga floppies on my PC for my Amiga Forever. This will go far for the Amiga emulation market.

This one could definitely hit my post-Christmas shopping list. Picking up AmigaForever after boxing away my A500's, but not the disks, in the last move did not help much. This should remedy that.
At least until we get some real next-generation Amiga boxes out that I can afford.
