GOOD. I'm glad they dropped the Work Bench name. It has nothing to do with Work Bench sources.

I'll ever say: i hope the best for commodore, just for the name. And because they remember my very youth. If i think of those afternoon when i was thirteen playing platoon on my c64 or defender of the crown on my a500...
But amiga isn't linux...


edit: i miss commodore in the same way i miss reagan, the cold war, f111, voyager, crazy ball and twisted sisters... is it a bad thing?
edit2: gimme back my reaganian hedonism!!! mr michael j.fox where are you now?

Goose: Do you know if this has any advantages over the SID2SID? I just received three 6581's in the mail for $22 shipped with fuses, and was about to goto work.

The one thing I'm wondering is if this board comes populated already or not. That's the down side (or up side depending on your perspective) is that you have to populate the board your self.

EDIT: NICE, you can order it pre-populated!

The hype continues. Still not one shipping product, unless you count their cto who is the only known purchaser of one of their products.

So far :

Starting using commodore name before having legal permission to do so.

Launched a website before having legal permission to use the commodore name or trademarks.

Starting using workbench name before having legal rights to do so.

copied and pasted apples website to their own site. (never admitted, but its been proven multiple times)

Ceo threatens to sue osnews.com for stating facts.

Ceo retracts legal threat after realizing what an %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@! he is.

Lots of announced then cancelled new products.

First trashed, then embraced aros, then switched to using ubuntu with a commodore wallper.

New products being announced every month, but not one shipping yet.

commodore stickers slapped on cybernet zpc's. (only one sold) The guy that bought one is their new chief technical officer.

They announce a new Commodore/amiga OS :
Commodore wallpapers on ubuntu. (Calling it workbench V)

A new company shipping amiga branded computers before them.

Somehow I'm not feeling very positive about this commodore "revival".

This makes more sense, calling the C64x's OS Workbench5 was a dumb move in the first place.

It displayed a complete lack of understanding of the two [separate] classic C= platforms and diluted/confused the branding, (which shows a lack of marketing savvy).

Same behaviour as usual then for C= and Amiga IP holders.

I'm getting 2 assembled! It is way better than that crap SID2SID.
"Second SID can be either 8580 or 6581 with any C64"

And it will work with MESSIAH too...

Read over the site, email the guy, he does PayPal, pretty reasonable I think.

To hook back into the subject if there's one still left, I think we are doing pretty good without a true mothership company, just look around. I think decentralized community / platform(s) is what will work, and be fun.

C=USA is heavily focused on the C64x's launch with all sorts of contractual obligations demanding C64x be ready in large numbers. Given the speed of this all coming together, it's going to have to have fairly stock OSs for it. The Amiga series, OTOH, is still being fleshed out while the C64x has very high priority. Once the C64x is out in stores, then I expect C=USA release information about the Amiga series and it's OS. Ubunto is not that exciting to me, C=USA's the follow on OS that will be running on C=USA Amiga series has my interest peaked. Although such a OS will probably take nearly a year to get such a project to beta level testing. :-|

Default Re: Workbench 5 renamed Commodore OS

While I have no problems with people being pro or anti C-USA or anything else, I wish people involved with C-USA would, in the interest of full disclosure: state they have vested interests. Opinions from people with vested interests on controversial topics like this are obviously biased - just like they were when that CTO Leo guy was pounding the pulpit for "the cause".

Nothing personal Dammy, but you're a moderator over there on C-USA forums. That no doubt has some bearing on the things you say that some people here may be reading and accepting as personal and unbiased opinion without outside influences. Vested interests are vested interests, no?

I wouldn't expect a Ford salesman to try and sell me, or say a kind word - about a Chev product, but I'd expect the Ford salesman to admit he's a salesman for Ford, lol.
