Thank you, you are absolutely right. I have been working on my project well before the other project was released for the first time. Developing and making a new product is simply not done in just a few weeks or months and, therefore, of a different level compared to making a replica.
Beaten ? No, It is different than the original Amiga replica design and thus brings a different experience to a different audience.
Due to the differences between the project I do not think timing is a big issue. Secondly, at the time the Amiga replica campaign was running on kickstarter and although my project wasn't ready, I didn't want to trash someone else's contribution to the Amiga community. Every Amiga project should be appreciated !!! and jeopardising someone else's is in my opinion absolutely not done.

Maybe we should convince Trevor to revise the Tabor board to slim ITX
