What really grinds my gears is the new Commodore Amiga Mini. Why is it called Amiga in the first place? It is just a PC running a cosmetically modified version of Linux Mint. The only thing that sets it apart from generic PC's is the engraving on the front of the case. They are apparantly trying to lure innocent people into purchasing this overpriced computer by portraying it as "the return of the Amiga". It's truly sad.
If this computer is an Amiga, then I can easily build one myself. I can get some cheap parts Online, stuff it into a case, and have a working PC. To make it an Amiga, I must of course carefully place a sticker on the case and install Linux.
The pricing of the Commodore Amiga Mini was horrible as well. Everyone knows that the parts used in the computer can easily be obtained elsewhere, as well as the case (check e-Bay for starters).
Suddenly they sliced the price with several hundred dollars just after the machine had been announced. Unprofessional to say the least.
Another thing.. some people might actually believe (if they don't start doing some research) that Commodore USA created the VIC Slim computer, when it turns out that it is just a rebadged machine. That seems to be what they do.. slap stickers on various cases and earn money on the brand names. "Milking" is a word that comes to mind.
Their discussion forum seems strange as well. Sometimes I like to pop in to have a read, but I find that many posts have just vanished. This has happened more than once. I remember a Linux-guy asking them several interesting questions, but his posts are all gone now, and I don't know why.
Anyway, better log off now. Have a good one!
