Amiga & AROS It's really been an Amiga week, hasn't it? As such, it seems only fitting to close this week off with some seriously epic news from the Amiga community. As most of you will know, Hyperion and Amiga, Inc. have been embroiled in a tough legal battle over the distribution and development rights of the AmigaOS, and all its associated trademarks. The epic news is that this situation is now completely and utterly resolved.

Excellent news indeed. I agree that an x86 port would be fantastic, as would an integrated app store (iPhone style).

Aside from having a popular hardware platform, to get Amigos OS back off the ground we need developers. Amiga OS still uses C as it's primary development language. Fast as C is, there's a dwindling number of coders that have any idea about how to write it. Not to mention that developing a sophisticated app using managed languages like C# is much much faster. IMHO, Amigo needs a development environment and language that is contemporary. Using C# or Java as a first class citizen in the Amiga SDK would make life a lot easier for potential devs.
