Why don't you just accept that because of what CUSA has done in the past some people can't accept olive branches. There are still some people left who have principles you know...
For those people, since you evidently are going to be celebrating with us on the great C=USA news you are not are apart of them, are going to be hating life as well as C=USA after this announcement until they too can accept the futility of hating the inevitable.

@CUSA

After all this hype, I hope that the announcement will be for something more than a Commodore Amiga branded PC running Linux.
And no, a custom wedge shaped case is not going to make it any better.

When can we expect to see this announcement?

Heavens - do you listen to yourself sometimes? You sound like a politician or some "1984" decal.

@ Dammy:

I'm really getting tired of your smug, holier-than-thou attitude sprinkled with elitism. It is fair to say that I'm using my full restraint to keep from banning you for a week.

Most of the replies about this news have been fair considering CUSA's track record.

I'm also sure CUSA just loves having you trying to drive in a wedge again and attempting to polarize the community but making "us" and "them" statements.

CUSA SEEMS to be trying to do something good for the community and your venom is SURE helping their cause!

"Improbable," more like.

Then why not just ignore these threads? I know there are plenty of threads I ignore because I have zero interest in.

Next thing you know CUSA will be claiming they are the 99% of Amiga.
Waiving signs that say #OCCUPY AMIGA!


Seriously! Why do these people INSIST on pushing a product that has nothing to do with Amiga on this website?

@dammy & digitex

We've already had more than enough anouncements from C=USA about their Amiga-branded PC, and about how, if we tell them exactly what we want from an Amiga and promise to pre-pay, they will STILL push their inferior product and defile the Amiga name.

I doubt the new announcement will sound any better than any of the previous announcements.

We've already seen how bad C=USA's products are. What more do we need?

We don't hate C=USA just for the pleasure of hating. We hate them because they are attacking the fundamentals of our favourite OS, and gloating about it on our forums.

Personally, I'd be more than happy if there were never another thread about C=USA. I'd be even happier if they went out of business. The only thing that would give me greater pleasure would be AInc's bankruptcy.

By the way, I never liked the wedge cases, so if your big announcement involves putting a Linux PC in a wedge case, there are three reasons already that I don't even want to hear about it. Four, if you include the fact that the announcement comes from C=USA.

[Reads TOS] Hrmmm could you point out where being "smug, holier-than-thou attitude sprinkled with elitism" is against TOS? I must have missed it.

There is no money in bickering. If you like money, withdraw, and establish your new business.
Having 'rights' on obscure forums won't generate sales, but next years, and future search engine results pointing to this silly feud, will, most certainly, hurt them.

How many minutes a day, do you wish to invest in diminishing your own prosperity?

I note that you only complain when it's a CUSA zealot getting reprimanded... J-Golden has been a mod for how long, and you're only just griping now? Figures.

That's a complete load. In all the years I've been on this site I believe this is the first time I've dropped a negative comment about a mod here.
