So if MAI is selling their boards for $500, which is considerably cheaper than the AmigaOne board, you could buy one of those instead, and when OS 4 comes out, apply the dongel to that machine?
It's been hard trying to find out any info on what AmigaOS 4 really will be. I saw the screenshots, but they don't tell you a whole lot, except that their implementing new pyrotechnics (transparent menus, oooh!). Does anyone know what the focus of AmigaOS 4 is? What will you be able to do with it, will there be a web browser, ect.?
It would also be interesting to hear exactly how well linux runs on these machines. Does anyone know if someone is creating a specific distro that installs easily?
