Carl himself just posted a response on his blog which should end this whole affair. He is satisfied with the people that purchased the items and that is all that matters.
For anyone still worried about the fate of these systems, take a deep breath. They are in good hands and we all plan to share them with the community, document them, photograph them and bring them to future events whenever possible. Like the man himself said, they are better off out with Amiga fans than sitting in his basement.
Thanks Paul for "having my back" hehe
