I received my AmigaOne X1000 system on Tuesday, September 20 after it had been held captive by Canadian customs for an extra day or so. It has been a long journey since I first got wind of this “most ambitious project” years earlier. Thanks to a bunch of lawyers, the model name on the case reads “AmigaOne” but at its heart beats the original Amiga operating system (AmigaOS) which has evolved significantly since its debut in 1985.
So the main disk failed in my Amiga. By failed I mean completely stopped spinning, does not even get warm when I plug it in. While I work to save any data I can, hopefully more on this later, I decided to "start from scratch". The value in starting over is I can take a fresh look at Amiga OS and what it's like to use the various websites for software. I was able to install the OS and all the updates in a matter of minutes with little hassle. Thinking back to the early days of OS 4 it's really progressed well.
Cube is the original game that started it all. Though it has been surpassed in almost every way by Cube 2, it is a game in its own right. Most importantly, it comes with over 100 (!) maps, most of which are not available in Cube 2, with extensive single and multi player content.
