Some Amiga people never grew out of their BBS flamer years.
Things like iPads, ChromeOS, underpowered Atom processors and SnapDragon netbooks indicate that there's still a market for things that aren't the most powerful or latest tech. Not that I'm comparing A-EON's product to any of those, as it's going to be much more of a niche product. But I do sincerely wish them well. Thus far, the've done me no harm nor promised to have the performance of a supercomputer for $200.
Moving the "Amiga way" forward has always had the "chicken and egg" problem- New software had no new hardware had no new software had no new hardware ad infinitum. I certainly don't hold it against companies like A-EON for trying to work beyond this.
