Goal reached? Defnitely not! It was supposed to be a next generation Amiga available to the "masses" (in terms of people still interested in buying new Amiga hardware) and except for a few people who are in possession of prototype versions it isn't available to anyone! Not what I call a reached goal!

Most probably as he wouldn't have started such a project otherwise.

His biggest mistake was to let certain people into the team as these people (specially one person!) turned this from a "silent hobby project" to something completely different. Before that he could work on it at his very own pace but once the "marketing campaign" was started this project wasn't anything like a hobby project anymore as now people had expectations. Which were fueled by always new (and often quite ridiculous!) announcements of new features. Besides, the way people who actually wanted to help were treated by the "marketing person" didn't help either!

See above, this could have been handled easily and peacefully at Thomas' own pace without any stress if he had't made the mistake to let other people ruin his very own project.
