Amiga & AROS So we finally meet! You can't imagine how hard I've tried to get my hands on a machine that could run AmigaOS 4 in all its glory. I've never used the Amiga before - not during its heydays, and not during its afterglow - so it meant an unexplored world for me. You can imagine my excitement when ACube Systems, makers of the sam440ep board that runs AmigaOS 4.1, offered a review machine to me, built around their own PowerPC sam440ep flex motherboard.

What an excellent review! Instead of the usual - I did this and here is a screenshot - you really got down to the heart of the matter. And you did it without being judgmental. Nice! I hope they doubled the usual $10000 EUR reviewer fee. It was worth it.

I personally feel the same about EComstation - OS/2 on Oxygen! It's cool that there is still life out there in the OS/2 world, but what kind of life is it? Is it worth the price? Well, if you have glorious memories of OS/2 of yore (which I do), it might be worth it. But most would find it not all that useable.

However, as you mentioned in your conclusion, I'm glad there are companies out there who keep these things alive. It could be quite boring without them. I think I'll go mess around with my Tandy 200 laptop this weekend. I've gotta get that thing onto my Lan...
