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.

curse indeed.
there's there law suit going on too. hyperion might not be allowed to use the name AmigaOS and continue developmment of OS4,
maybe everyone should go for AROS.
it seems there's not much flames or law suit around it..

but there's no MP nor uft8 support either..
