I was actually referring to a CF card image that has a startup-sequence and menu with whdload setup etc so the basic user can just copy the files on to the CF card, put in the whdload key etc and be off and running.
Classic Workbench?

Don't worry- Vesalia will not have the accelerators on the 27th November- this date is not accurate.

There will only be a few days difference between stores. We aim to publish as accurate dates as possible on our webstore.

Thing is the A600 still only has ECS chipset which will always hold you back on choice of workbench. I ran classic workbench ADV on my A600 with the apollo 630 and it was pretty slow but IGame works a treat.

With the Apollo 620 I run CWB full and it runs nice again with full IGame and screenshot pack.

Im wondering how the IndiECS will help with workbench speeds?

Not at all. It's just a flickerfixer. HighGFX in 800x600 can ease the pain, but you will never get "blazingly fast".

Seems Jens/Individual Computers has consistently made the right choices in widening the Amiga audience and thereby potential customers, of course. I'm impressed, especially considering quality and manpower.

I've made some hints before that the next logical step is to extend this to a complete motherboard with chipset remade in modern components. You've made the big steps, Jens! Not much left now... I also like the A1k project, being a less steep hill to climb but all the more logical and plausible because of it.

Yep, I'm not expecting a Miracle to be honest, I know what to expect from my experience with the Apollo 630, but I expect a slight speed gain from your Memory architecture.

Must get me an IndiECS

CloneA, just think of all the information Jens has.
Sooner or later he can put them all together to make magic happen.

What would be the appeal for you with CloneA over Minimig, FPGA Arcade or Natami?

I said cloneA cause it is Jens project, and he has a nice track record of getting things done.

I used to be excited for Natami, but it faded away. Like a relationship gone sour.

The minimig is a great piece of work, and I think the FPGA arcade will be great too.

I've got a question.. suppose I want to upgrade my plain A600...
Do the following upgrades all fit in one device:

ACA630
A603 Memory + Indivision ECS
4GB CF IDE HD

I think it can be done, but please confirm!.. I'm about to go nuts.. I want it!

Yes. But you have to remove internal floppy drive, which is useless these days.

Those products are all compatible- you will need to remove FDD as previous poster has correctly stated.
