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.

about amigaos, what make it interesting for thoses who ask:

- it's fast (i mean lightnening fast on everyday operation, files ops etc)
- it's highly and easily customizable.(you can change just about *everything* to your liking.. very easily)
- the system is very simple to understand and logic to use.
(nothing you can compare with linux, macos & windows..
i mean like: system's files hierarchy, and way of working:
library go in "libs" drawer, fonts go in "fonts" and so on..
no weird behavior, no strange logic .. etc ..
- you feel you're the one using it .. and not the OS using you ;)
- it's fun to use.. you enjoy using a computer with amigaos.


i guess that's about it ;)
have a good look at it :
