Re: SSolie quote - "Warp3D is going away"

The silence on certain projects (not all) is deafening, and frustrating for all concerned.

For example, members of the community having to do what we are doing right now to get Warp3D support via old supported PCI cards - using weird PCI-X converters and extenders to get around pci 33Mhz bus speeds on our X1000's to use them.

This work wouldn't be necessary except for having no idea when (and if) Warp3D support will ever come to Radeon HD cards for X1000 owners. We assume it isn't, hence the work to create a workaround recently.

The lively ongoing development of LiveForIt Mplayer, Dopus5 and Odyssey (with a lot of end user beta testing) in 2014 have been great highlights for me personally, that have really genuinely pushed forward what the AmigaOS4 platform can do. We have seen a lot of collaboration done on these projects, and they are great for building interest too! I am certainly more engaged and wanting to do more with my X1000 as a result.

More of this kind of development please, with engagement with the remaining community on ongoing developments (to make us feel things are actually happening) is the key to retaining the community's interest in the AmigaOS4 platform.

Also, we know a lot of software is BETA state (like DOpus5 was in development phase) and needs testing to refine it. This is not a tens of thousands or million plus user base we are talking about here for AmigaOS4. Why not get the software out there more regularly (in BETA form) for the community to help with that process, and make them feel involved in pushing forward the platform? It works!

Anyway, my 2 cents. I love the AmigaOS4 platform and just want to continue to see ongoing developments and progress made and communicated. I am grateful for all development work being done to push the platform forward.
