|Yes, I agree with Stefano that it would be cool to help you with research, at least with funding but also other things if possible. I mean would it be helpful if one could donate your project somehow? Would it accelerate developing of dev-board as well as end-user system?|

|Great news, I hope that NatAmi will be true to see (I'm sure).|
Great work, great specs, everything is great. Please keep up the good work with this project!
P.S.: I didn't find my country (Greece) when I registered. :-/

Hi I cannot wait for the NatAmi. This is what Amiga needs - a simple cheap platform.
Maybe EXTERNAL LINK can give helpful ideas !
I would also like to donate to help with this project.
keep us posted !

first of all, like so often said, very good idea to make a new amiga. A real amiga. With own chipset. You wrote first developer boards will come in summer 2008. Will it be possible to play amiga games with it? Or ist it only for beta testing? What about the price? Can standard modern PC Hardware like mouse, keyboard, disk drives, cd-rom, harddrive etc. be used with NatAmi? Is Peter K. Peter Kittel? I´m looking forward to NatAmi!!!!!!!!!

|Just wanted to thank you for your effort on brining us an all new Amiga. I was an Amiga user myself until the mid/late 90s - then switched to a Windows 98 PC (which was disappointing) and then to Macintosh. Though still pleased with my old Mac, I can't help myself - but somehow I'm still missing to work & play with my good old Amiga. Imagine how exited I was, when I got to know about your project in a german computer/videogame forum.|
I was completly out of touch with the amiga scene for all those years (actually it was a big suprise to learn that Amiga Inc. still exists!) but your aim for a cheap AND evolved new Amiga really gets me hooked up on the whole thing again. A machine for safe internet use and e-mailing, office works and some game classics would be fantastic. Please keep up the good work!

|Amiga fans haven't seen news so good for years! :) I myself was getting a wee bit tired of reading fairytales on how OS4 can run on a PowerPC Mac. Just as I though it's going to be AmigaForever forever ;) NATAMI came along!|
I'm looking forward to any news regarding your project, it looks very promissing. I did an article covering NATAMI on my website jamniczekzombie.com and hope to put some updates soon :)
Keep up the good work! You're the city upon a hill for the Amiga world.

|Hi together, |
only 3 weeks have passed since opening of this forum - and
in this time we are hitting soon over 2000 views on this thread.
Thank you all for your momentum and spirit! Even when Thomas
has no time to participate (yet), he is inspired of your support!

|I suppose you guys will be tweaking the look and feel of the forum over coming weeks, to add new features to the system. For instance, it might be worth it to add a thing somewhere on the page, near the LogOut button, stating what name you are logged in under. Might be an issue for instances where more than one person in a household or apartment has an account here. They might accidentally post under the other guy's account! :D|
A preview-the-post button would be really handy, too.
Oh yeah, and avatar support would be a plus. :-)
And, of course, graphical smilies... :-P
But, no great rush. Don't drop out of doing the important things in order to add those features. Do them at your leisure instead.

|I've been following the Natami since reading about it on one of the Amiga websites. This is the most excited I've been about the Amiga in a long time.|
I'm a former Amiga user myself, having owned both an A500 and A1200 back in the late 80's/early 90's. I abandoned the scene around 1995 and switched to Windows. After suffering through Windows 95 and 98 I started running Linux full-time. Eventually, I gave Windows another try with XP but was not impressed. Then a couple of years ago I bought an Intel iMac, which I have grown to love.
For me, the Natami would never replace my iMac (I could never give up Logic Studio). Instead, I would use it to run some of the older Amiga software and games that I have missed over the years, as well as any newer stuff that takes advantage of the Super AGA chipset. Eventually, I'd love to see a Natami-AROS machine. That would be the combination that could make me spend a little less time with my Mac and more time with Natami.
Thanks again for breathing new life into the Amiga community. I'll be watching your progress with great interest.

|This project is really incredible!|
I await it impatiently…
The forum is a super idea and will show that Natami is awaited by many people!
Next stage: pre-order?

|Indeed it is a very ambitious and difficult project.|
You know, the main problem with amiga community is that we have heard a lot of "two more weeks"(C).
So when many people hear about NatAmi, they just laugh!
They think that it will never see the light of day etc.
I believe in this project.
If this project makes it, it will change forever the amiga scene. Not only in the "HW" part but also in the "two more weeks"(C) part :)

It will change COMPUTING altogether!!!!!!!!
I bought a Jornada 720 in 2001 or so. It had windosCE. IT WAS A USELESS PIECE OF GARBAGE!
But at the same time, maybe almost the BEST DESIGNED almost shirt pocket computer EVER!
Find the 720 EXTERNAL LINK A picture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:HP_Jornada_720.JPG
"The Jornada 720 was released in 2000. It featured 32 MB of RAM, a Compact Flash slot, a PC card slot, a Smart card slot, 56K Modem, 640x240 16-bit display, and a 206 MHz StrongARM CPU. It ran under the Windows CE 3.0 based HPC2000."
You could plug it into a telephone jack with a regular cord. It had a touch screen. 6+ hours of battery life. Had a bigger battery available even. You could record and play audio. Headphone jack. There was an attachment that allowed for it to be connected to a VGA monitor for 1024*768 res.
BUT, after ONE YEAR of release, I couldn't find ANY SW for it on the internet.
NOW IMAGINE this as a NatAmi!!!!
RUN ANY AMIGA SW!!!!!
Do Aladdin4D, IBrowse, DNetc, PageStream, AMOS Professional, play any Amiga Games like Dungeon Master, Black Crypt, Shadow of the Beast.... and SEMOSCENE!!!!
But no, the device was pure stinking ms trash!
Why will it forever change the COMPUTING scene???
Because it's the LAST OF IT'S KIND.
None of these things are FORCED ON US:
Swap file (you are forced to use this on windross)
Registry (On Amiga it is GENERALLY A BREEZE to change programs' locations on the hard drive.)
Self-modifying code; FORBIDDEN!
Where the OS can be located, and where it can't!
LACK OF RAM: DRIVE. Try and install a game on a ram: drive, if you can find a good one on wincrap.
RAD: just doesn't exist. period!
Draggable screens. You can't code a hack into windross for that.
Video and audio drivers that are 10, 20, 30 Megs in size (DirectX)
Files all over the place that can't be looked at or erased. Temp files by the thousands. (WindosXP is about 10,000 files on fresh install, and it kind of goes downhill from there.)
And, there's more..........

|Totally agree with you Thierry,|
If it makes it, we shall see a rapid change in our computing lifes.
Don't expect the "mass" to change, but who cares anyway :P
