Today I had the opportunity to pass sometime playing with my Amiga 2000. The computer was not even on my desktop, as I recently brought it from the previous home. So I woke up, I made my coffee and immidiately began to set up the computer.
As soon as I turned it on memories came in front of my eyes, not just because I am using again an Amiga computer, but because I have the opportunity to wake up and do that, as I am drinking my coffee at the morning. It was my favorite hour for a long time ago. It was and it is the only thing that make me feel relaxed and calm.
The Wilson A2000 enters its 55th year of game changing performance. Constructed from world famous Pro Stock leather; the secret of it’s unmatched lifespan. All you need to do is put it on - You’ll feel it. The millions of hours of engineers, ballplayers and craftsmen working together to put their passion in the palm of your hand.
Pro Stock ™ Game Model: Developed in tandem by Aso and Evan Longoria. All customizations and tweaks identical to his gamer. Evan favors the old school style of the EL3 in terms of it’s saddle tan color, and the Cross Web. Evan fell in love with Mike Lowell’s glove the first time he saw it, and tweaked it just a little to make it his own.

The A-Max, released in 1989 by ReadySoft Inc., is a very interesting hardware addon for the Amiga A500, A1000, and A2000 models. Using the existing hardware in the Amiga, this allowed you to run the full Macintosh environment without needing a Mac! Well, kind of. You still needed to provide ROM chips from your actual Macintosh (128K, 512K, 512Ke, & Plus) that you owned and not illegal copies you burned onto EPROMs. Ahem.
With this hardware dongle that connects to the floppy drive port, and the software that comes with it, you could run up to System 6.0.3 on your Amiga, and be able to use your existing mouse and keyboard, as well as your Amiga and Macintosh floppy disk drives. There is also a port that allows you to use an ImageWriter printer, but there is no LaserWriter/PostScript support. There is also no sound support, aside from the system bell. And you don’t get clock support if you are using the A1000.
Several revisions were released in the following years, adding support for more features and newer revisions of MacOS, as well as actual sound and color support. The last version, released in 1993, supported emulation of the Quadra, as well as a bunch of powerful hardware hacks that made integration of the existing Amiga environment much more seamless. After that, ReadySoft Inc. was acquired by Malofilm Communications in 1996, and discontinued all their products.
