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.

Qemu/VM Amiga OS4?

Nope... it is protected...

If you want to hack it, then, if you keep your attempts in private and at home you are free to do so ...

It works under PPC, and even under QEMU, PPC emulation is very poor.

At least when QEMU will be capable to emulate a PPC with a minimum clock speed of 200 Megahertz...

...then AmigaOS could run flawlessly even with this poor clock speed.
