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.

Anyway, it's a good and amusing review. You have expressed exactly the doubts I'd expect from people accustomed to nowadays operating systems. AmigaOS is quite different and imposes a completely different paradygms when writing applications and handling the deskt... workbench. You have to get accustomed to them. They aren't easy or comfortable to understand: that's part of the game. The only issue with them, however, is that they just feel... old.
