|Just finished it, and while its not CBM centric, I like its not centered around e.g. CBM demise or Amiga making, but in "company ups and downs overall" - from PET to A4000 (even mostly A500 and A2000 are shown).|
I loved enthusiastic presentation of retro community, both CBM and Amiga ones. Its not done over the tone, like in Viva Amiga I have supported. Really nice.
I was a bit sad when Trevor was overly entusiastic in promising the future while knowing Nemo seen in background still suffers from e.g. not done ethernet driver, CFE not updated, improved Linux support like LILO style booter done in amigaboot.of manner / Gnome and 3D fixing for SE Cards / prepaid OS 4.2 and lies of new AMP/SMP enabled exec, Gallium and Warp3D cards for all ) or x5000 OS in beta testing live / Timberwolf and Libre promised to since 2011 and never really done so far / so much software gone to AEON licensing not to be avail on sale or in development - e.g. Octamed and ImageFX / Also Enhancer was promoted for OS3 but never done).
I am not expecting wonders, but I do think companies and individuals are worth of trust only as much as one can see their words and deeds in consistance. When list of undelivered over summs the list of delivered or done to the proper end, one looses credibility.
I was glad to see Dan and some "smaller" community people, not just big names. Nice tribute to Amiga30 too ...
