This is great stuff, though it sucks that ive got to tower the machine to use it. However lots of Amiga devs have turned into PPC, will they now go back to more powerful 68k apps? I can't help to wonder if this is a step in the right direction, even if I'm very interested in the product.

I think it's a great thing, especially since it seems the Dragon is able to run your old 3.x apps, only faster. This means, in my point of view, that you're able to listen to MP3s without a dedicated soundcard w/mpeg-decoder anymore, lightwave/imagine/Cinema4d would FLY through the renderings, and it should also be possible to view my AVI-DivX;-) files, with no too much problems.

And who needs to Tower the Amiga? just build a case outof wood and move the motherboard there That's what I'm planning todo, anyways, if I EVER should need it

The question always arises: Is it worth it?
However I don't see lots of the devs who have crossed to PPC going back to 68k/coldfire. Let's remember there are no apps to read divx on 68k, for example. I hope to be wrong, because Im very interested in this piece of kit.

this in my eyes could be THE amiga accelerator... IF it is compatible with 68k and not heavy patches like warpos are needed...
But I am afraid the price will be too high....
