There is no way Elbox will sell as many Dragons as there are current Amiga PPC cards. Developers wont switch to Dragons. Software will be limited to older 680x0 stuff, a few back ports and whatever Elbox gives you in the way of drivers (i.e. not much)

Like I said in my post if this was a direct replacment for the Blizzard 060, if it were cheap, compatible with 680x0 software, a classic A1200 turbo card in all senses, it would sell loads and be a great product, but it's not

It's a whole new computer with an A1200 interface
Yes, lots of development

I could see people wanting to spead up their 68K Amiga software with a super accelerator, but anything PPC is a waste of cash for a dead architecture.
