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.

According to the OS/2... Have you heard about Delphi based trojan/backdoor software (called sometimes, improperly, a virus) that is installed in some cash machines running Windows XP? It's a fact right now. It's good to mention, that security experts were warning that changing the OS/2 for Windows XP as an OS for cash machines a couple of years ago is highly insecure. With especially prepared electronic card you can invoke the trojan interface, you can operate with the "new functions" of compromised cache machine, you can even print all the stolen data using internal printer!!! So... Why am I saying about that?

Maybe there is a niche (at least there was, but I think nothing is lost still) for ecommstation? It would be a reasonable replacement for OS/2? And probably it would be not possible to develop such a trojan application to compromise ecommstation cash machines...

I think there are some chances for ecommstation still.
