Speaking as guy who *blanked so I don't get nicked* I don't give a toss if the cruddy piece of crap doorstop that pretends to be something it's not promotes piracy or not. Another run of C64 DTV would be far more welcome. They are starting to get silly price tags:

Holy crap! Talk about being an optimist! I'd better tell my son to look after his as it should be able to fund him through 3 years of university by the time he graduates high school.

Seriously though, who would pay a price like that when you can order a Chameleon64 from Vesalia that does a hell of a lot more for way less.

Default Re: C64x promotes piracy.

OK, I stand corrected. There seems to have been developments regarding Amiga floppy disks and NG Amigas that I wasn't aware of. So let me re-phrase my original comment:

To put this in perspective: It may be possible to use real Amiga floppy disks on the AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Aros or the FPGA based solutions. But piracy is the most common solution there as well

I just find it a bit silly to use piracy as an argument against the C64x, that's all.
