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.

I haven't tried 4.x, but I believe Workbench has been largely unchanged since Workbench 2.0, which was meant to be run off an 880 KB floppydisk. "Strange" options like snapshot would be there because of the time it would take to store changes to disk, every time you moved an icon.

As I understand it, Workbench is due for a complete rewrite.
