I was on topic but I guess spamming vaporware? Gunnar was banned for a short period (week?) for doing something similar (after a quick warning he may not have even had time to read) but he was posting in a thread with a topic asking for 68000 optimizations (off topic). The mods here are generally tolerant of most discussions but very sensitive of any discussion of an Amiga future. The mods on the A-EON forums are mostly AmigaOS 4 fan boys who wish to squelch any criticism of AmigaOS 4, PPC or the current "business plan". I have had too many of my posts disappear to waste my time posting there anymore.

WOS is nice in some ways but the Phase5 PPC hardware setup is not optimal with the context switches (my 68060 should not be as close in performance to the newer P5 PPC hardware). Vbcc makes compiling some applications like Quake for WOS easy at least. AmigaOS 4 all PPC native is a better solution but probably has become sluggish for the old PPC hardware and less compatible with a classic Amiga? The P5 PPC hardware was meant to be a temporary bridge to more powerful all PPC hardware but that bridge looks shaky and has a high toll today.

Those are the guys "up" in the community?
I believe a week ban is 7 days off. I probably won't ever post anything on an A-EON web site again though.

Light side are we? Darkness shrouds Amiga land. Chaos and discord rules. Hope there yet is but clouded the future remains.
