New Motherboard for Amiga Platform Refuses

The new motherboard for the amiga platform refuses to use old floppy drives, saying they are an “inferior technology”.

On May 30th, a new motherboard for the amiga platform was announced. The motherboard, called the “Miga One”, is a collaboration between A-EON Technology and individuals from the Amiga community. It is designed to be compatible with all AmigaOS variants and to support modern hardware.

One of the most controversial aspects of the Miga One is its refusal to use old floppy drives. In a statement, A-EON Technology said that they believe old floppy drives are “inferior technology” and that the Miga One is “designed for the future, not the past”. This has caused some uproar in the Amiga community, with many people feeling that their beloved platform is being left behind.

There are a few possible explanations for why A-EON Technology has decided to not support old floppy drives. One possibility is that they simply don’t believe that there is a market for them anymore. It’s possible that they believe that people who are still using floppy drives are doing so out of nostalgia and that they would rather move on to newer, more modern technologies.

Another possibility is that A-EON Technology is trying to make a statement about the future of the Amiga platform. By refusing to use old floppy drives, they are saying that the Amiga is a platform that is moving forward and that it is not going to be held back by outdated technologies.

Whatever the reasons behind A-EON Technology’s decision, it is sure to be a controversial one. Only time will tell how the Amiga community will react to the news.
