Amiga's comeback

Apparently the legendary Amiga should celebrate its comeback soon. Amiga announced this at least with the AmigaOne, which is the first new hardware from Amiga in 6 years.

The Eyetech Group is the first partner allowed to offer Amiga components. Amiga is in talks with other manufacturers. AmigaOne can call itself all systems that meet the new Amiga hardware specifications, called 'zico', and that have passed tests with the new Amiga DE (Digital Environment). The following hardware specifications are defined as key data: AmigaDE compatible CPU, 64 MByte memory, Matrox graphics card, Creative EMU10k1 sound card, 10 GigaByte hard disk, CD/DVD, USB 1.0, Firewire, 10/100 MBps Ethernet card, 56k modem, PCI slots. Eyetech offers an AmigaOne PPC1200 board with a G3/G4 Mac CPU, which is suitable as a basis for a new AmigaOne. But the board should also be used as an upgrade of previous Amigas and breathe new life into old Amigas. The user can choose between the old Amiga desktop or the new Amiga DE environment using the boot manager.
