Amiga & AROS In a discussion on Amiga forum site The Amigans, the Friedens twin brothers (developers of AmigaOS 4.0 exec kernel) revealed that the complete Amiga OS architecture will move ahead to a new design. The new AmigaOS (let's call it AmigaOS 4+1) will include some sort of virtual environment in which old (AmigaOS 4.0) applications will run as separate tasks, in their own address space. MorphOS, an Amiga-like operating system, employs a similar method to allow for compatibility with older Amiga 3.x applications. AmigaWorld of course also discusses the matter.

" Seriously, what is this even doing on OSNews? "

It's about news and stuffs, concerning OSes right?
so that's why it's here. To let ppl know that Amiga didn't evolve much since 1993, to let them know it have this and that problems.. such as no css capable browser, no utf8 and no MP, and that's it's extremly flaky, crash prone.. things like that, and when you try to discuss it on Amiga public forums you get banned.

It's an insider view of AmigaOS, you get it for free, and you can make up your mind about Amiga, in case you would want to know more about Amiga, or try to buy one.
And it's objective.. not like other "official" reviews that says Amiga rules and you should buy one right now.

I could write a full review with tests, screenshots and details if asked.

that's what "this" is doing on OSNews.
If you're not interested you might want to choose to read other news items and other users comments.

like, i'm not interested in windows news and it's users comments ..but i don't ask why it's here. it's here because it news and stuffs about OSes i guess..
