Wink The (one and only) CUSA thread

Hi:
Just want to tell I've seen this at http://www.commodoreusa.net/CUSA_OS.aspx :

Introducing AMIGA Workbench 5.0 Workbench 5.0
"A distinctive, attractive, advanced and stable operating system experience"
Unleash your creative potential with AMIGA Workbench 5.0, a distinctive, attractive, advanced and stable operating system experience, that will come pre-loaded with dozens of the latest and greatest productivity and creativity software the open source world has to offer. Featuring dozens of exciting 3D games, the latest web browsing technology, a Microsoft Word compatible Office Suite, advanced graphical manipulation programs, 3D raytracing software, advanced software development tools and languages, photo and movie editing and sound and music composition programs, there is no task too big or too small for a Commodore or AMIGA to accomplish.

"100% Commodore Compatible"
Feeling nostalgic? Workbench 5.0 will also be 100% Commodore compatible, able to run classic 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit era software via emulation. A beautiful user interface allows you to easily peruse games for the Commodore PET, Vic20, C16, C64, C128 and AMIGA. No need to bother with floppy disks, as practically every game you ever owned is now readily available on the internet.

All our machines will also provide optimum software flexibility with the optional extra to run Windows software either from a dual boot menu at start up, or seamlessly integrated within Workbench 5 itself.

More information will be available before launch. Please check back later for updates.

They have updated his web, and now you can see photos like this of the new C64:

Moved to Amiga scene. A tad vague for a news thread.

Yes, and I think it won't be updated for a couple of years...

Too bad this won't be available in Europe - it'll fail miserably on CE testing.

Just a Mini-ITX PC running emulators. IMO not really interesting. Lots of people did that themselves.

Those empty black boxes carrying Amiga names are a real disgrace.
