AmiWest was held last weekend, but there was no news about the netbook. One year after the original announcement, there has been no news about the progress or development. Do you guys think it'll be released some time in the future or is it just wishful thinking?

I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't materialise.

But I hope it does as I would be very tempted to buy one.

So many Amiga related projects do get announced with great enthusiasm, but then never appear. I'm guessing its the problem of enthusiasm and dreams in the concept stage, becoming an overwhelming project, with limited development funds and only a handful of people.

Nothing mentioned about the netbook, but that doesn't mean that's a vapor. Probably work is still to be done. What I know so far, is that the second core of the X1000 computers will be utilized soon under AmigaOS 4.1.

That's interesting news. Multithreading in AmigaOS. So multitasking should be faster. Won't applications need to be written to directly support multicores though?

Yes indeed interesting news. I believe that applications need to be written specifically to be able to utilise two cores, but I'm not entirely sure about that.
