Only Amiga – Reasons for naming petition


http://www.petitiononline.com/petitions/newamiga/signatures

It has come to our attention that Commodore USA is about to launch a new line of „AMIGA(tm)“ branded computers using the classic Amiga(tm) naming convention. These new computers have absolutely nothing in common with the old Amiga(tm) computers other than the name.

By the reuse of the classic Amiga(tm) names we firmly believe that this will confuse potential users of the AmigaOS(tm) platforms, i.e. the AmigaONE(tm) line of computers.

Your „Amiga 1000x“ model for instance will most likley be confused with the „AmigaONE X1000“ from A-EON. The Amiga community today is focused around the AmigaOS and its derivatives. While Commodore USA might not see this as a primary market a lot of work both commercial and non-profitable has been put into the success of the Next Generation AmigaOS and the AmigaONE hardware. That is why the sudden introduction of a new Commodore branded Amiga 1000x could be seen as a way to buy into this success.

This is the reason why we wholeheartedly appeal to you to reconsider using the old classic Amiga numbering in your new line of Commodore Amigas

for my fellow Amigans

A real Amiga would run Amiga software.

objection is not only confusion to AmigaOne series, but to Amiga Classics. Some people still use Classics, and they are not reproducing Classic models of any kind. Having EXACT same name of the old and new model IS confusion (e.g. how to threat it on Wikipedia etc.). However, knowing it will be simple PC`s I doubt they will also ever enter Amiga history pages or Wikipedia articles: they have nothing to do with AmigaOS`s which is real Amiga criteria.

Very innovative to use the Amiga[tm] name for your standard PCs. Noone will buy this crap.

poooooooooor….

dont use the original numbers!!

Those names are taken…

A Linux distro is not an Amiga…

Cusa! why use Amiga name..Pc with no real incarnation of AmigaOS can never be an AMIGA computer!

We still love the old amigas, with all the follow-up computers, but only as long as it actually relates to amigaOS in some way apart from the name only.

 Even some strange reasons like
