The X500 Plus is live on Kickstarter!

Directly from Loriano:

"Hi everyone,

These seven-eight years have been fun and very costly.

All the latest modifications to make it cheaper have been added and paid for, I've cut and removed stuff but it'd still retain its identity.

I've managed to cut the cost from 259 to 235, it still means that I'll have to find the rest of the money somewhere else and, as before, making them at a loss for a while...

So the X500 Plus is now live on kickstarter.

Just go to the kickstarter page for the "X500 Plus computer case" and choose yours or think about supporting it by pledging some cash.

I've created some rewards from 1 to 255 or more, it's up to you really.

No money will be collected unless the project is funded successfully by the 31st March! So no risk there...

We need to reach or smash through 10,000.

This is where the community comes in!

This will be one of the very first Amiga related kickstarter projects and its success will depend on us.

Even if you don't want one please think about supporting it.

1) It'll make the community look good
2) It'll publicise the whole community to a massive audience
3) It'll publicise AmigaOS, AROS, MOS etc...etc... to a massive audience
4) Names such as AmigaOS, AROS, MOS, ACube, Hyperion, amigaworld.net,
amiga.org, amigakit.co.uk, Vesalia, amigans.net, natami.net, amiganews.it etc... will appear several times in videos and project descriptions on my behalf.

5) It'll make people who want one happy.
6) Failing is not an option! So no pressure then!

One more request...please refrain from trolling or asking questions regarding its price (we all know that they'll be sold at a loss so you've got your answer already), questions regarding the keyboard, the colour of the case etc...etc...have been answered already. Please keep this thread on topic.

But ideas about the kickstarter project itself, ideas about new rewards and how to improve the project are very welcome.

Please spread the word!

Thank you very much! "
