Hmm must i understand that these drivers currently use too much cpu ?

So what will it be ? There will be ONE program making use of this, just like ammx. Not impressive.

It doesn't have to be my problem for me to point out a few bad details...

So the team is losing customers because of promises not fulfilled, and doesn't care. Replying "then sell it back" isn't the best of marketing methods...

I wouldn't buy one even if i wanted to - no trapdoor V1200 available.
But as former team member I have a few things to say, sorry if you don't like it.

So you've just admitted they don't listen to anyone...

If I would do that people would think I am completely crazy, wouldn´t they?

Vampire cards and future standalone are new products, I do not need to buy if I do not like the company/developer behind, the product or both. I do not see the difference here
But, if you would buy a BMW if they listened to your suggestions, would you still close your mouth ?

Exchange of ideas AND difference of opinions can/will usually produce new ideas or methods. AND when you produce a product, its usually to please/make it useful for a end user. That means people that are still on the fence about a product.

So discounting xyz persons opinion just creates friction and negativity. If you start a post with "your opinion doesnt matter", you know the rest of the post you make will be read with hostility, and the rest off the thread will spin out of control like pretty much every thread in Amigaworld/amiga.org.
Its that a direction you want EAB to go?

No software "needs" hyperthreading, so your argument can be returned to you...
And Whdload does not "need" MMU but it can use it and is safer that way.
