Amiga Flashback... or maybe not
The AmigaWest show was interesting and fun, but it's getting quite small these days. The show helped clear-out my head and gave me various new ideas. That often happens at shows, doesn't it?
Also, witnessing the market fragmentation problems that Amiga faces (mainly due to lack of new product delivery) really makes you want to find a way to focus all that energy and talent into building something positive.
As a result, I had a chat online with members of the AmigaWorld.net community about the definition of the Amiga. You might be surprised at how I define Amiga. It's not about chips and CPUs.
My interest in this topic comes from the fact that I think a smaller, lightweight OS still has merit, in fact it has several appealing advantages in today's world of computing. Of course, it needs to have a good web browser and a base of key applications to make it of sufficient value. It's an appliance. Maybe a "Google computer". Really... I don't rule it out.
