"John B"

"See here for an interview with Eyetech which details the sorry story of where things have ended up "

Very sobering reading especially when Amiga used to have a much bigger market than Acorn. Where have all the USA enthusiasts gone ?

I guess Risc OS users should count themselves very luck there is new hardware. Although I guess the acid test is if people like castle decided to repeat developments now they have real commercial experience of development costs and a better understanding of the size of the market.

I guess a factor must be that people involved with Risc OS seem to be extremely optimistic by nature and not a jot of cynical realisium to be seen.

One of the bigger challenges for the Amiga is that they had to rewrite for a different processor. I wonder how much different things would have been if they had decided to rewrite to run on the PC platform.
