Amiga & AROS The Amiga changed the computer industry. It was based on a multitasking operating system, rivaled the graphics power of some workstations and was affordable enough for home users. Unfortunately, Commodore struggled to maintain Amiga's lead, and through a number of bizarre business decisions (refusing to license the Amiga design to Sun), went bankrupt.

"That's really too bad. Will there be some sort of copy protection to actively block people from using Pegaosen? "

There would have to be drivers written to use the Marvel Chipset that the Peg 2 uses for starters, plus a peeling of many software patches to get around the issues associated with older Articia chipset. Then theres the fact you'd have to get it to mesh with I the different firmware, AmigaOne uses a bodge job called "Uboot" (I've played with it first hand, it *is* a bodge) wereas the pegasos uses an off the shelf firmware.

For Efika I believe you also have the added issue of getting AmigaOS to run on a PPC405 embedded processor.
