I feel the same way. It's still way too expensive for me.
I'd imagine the first 100 boards would sell easily - I'd have to assume there are more than 100 people in a worldwide fan base with the right amount of pocketmoney.. if there wasn't there'd be no point in even making a beta board.
I'd be hoping that there would be at least several thousand out there. I'm also hoping that there is enough interest so that they turn a profit on the ones they produce. This being said, putting a margin up against an unknown figure makes for a bit of a toothless point. What is it double of? 100,1000,10,000?
I might have not so quickly shelved it in the 'nope - not for me' bin if OS4 ended up being 'the dogs bollocks' - and there's no way for me to know that - It's not the 80s-90s anymore, I can't go and see it running anywhere.. a couple of grand for a looksee - nah.. that ain't gonna happen.
Either way I wish Amikit all the luck with their new offering, I only wish the folks developing OS4 gave you some better options to do it with.
