Amiga & AROS "In a previous item, we described how the AmigaOS4.0 memory system works in terms of managing memory allocations from the top. However, there is more to allocating memory than that. The object caches of course work on memory that has already been mapped into the virtual memory space. But both the virtual address ranges, as well as the physical memory has to come from a source, too."

AmigaOS 4 is great but there is a big problem with it

I think they made a bad choice with the ppc. Except a few fans, who will buy another (slow) computer just to run AmigaOS4 ?? And even with this huge aminet library, it still plain old software. For me like for many others, OS4 is & will be irrelevant without an X86 port.
