It's not even a hobby hacker system. Nobody is breaking out breadboards for this, the only thing X does is cost money. And the demo people either left or stuck to AGA Amigas.
it's an evolution of AmigaOS and A-Eon has committed to PPC hardware for quite some time now. If you have a chance to use OS4.1 at perhaps a computer show then you will feel quite at home.
You do have a choice of AmigaOS4.1, AROS, or MorphOS today to enjoy your modern Amiga fix. It's up to you to support it and make it better
The Xorro/XMOS slot on the X1000 is there waiting to be hacked by an old or future amigan....been quite a few interesting discussions about current/ future projects.
I enjoy what i have today and when something cool comes out of the Xorro/Xmos slot I'll be happy to try it out.
