Amiga & AROS "Hyperion Entertainment is very pleased to announce the immediate availability (for registered AmigaOne customers) of Amiga OS 4.0, The Final Update. Originally released in May of 2004, Amiga OS 4.0 is the most stable, modern and feature-rich incarnation to date of the multi-media centric operating system launched by Commodore Business Machines (CBM) in 1985 with which it still retains a high degree of compatibility. Amiga OS 4.0, The Final Update is the culmination of 5 years of development and takes the form of a stand-alone ISO image which contains a full installation of all Amiga OS 4.0 components. A list of new features can be found here. Availability of PowerPC hardware suitable for operation with Amiga OS 4.0 will be announced by third parties early 2007." Together with Microsoft selling Linux and Apple switching to Intel, this is the definitive proof that hell is now officially frozen. I sure know I'm taking ice skates with me to the grave.

It's all that's left to discuss about AmigaOS; even RISC OS has a port of Firefox.

But there's still nothing to discuss about AmigaOS and Intel CPUs. Hyperion doesn't have a license to do a port to anything else than companies that have licensed hardware.

As of now, only AROS is the only one that can grow. But it's still missing several basic critical pieces (Installer, more NIC support, etc...)

AmigaOSes just aren't there yet.
