Amiga & AROS It seems like only yesterday, but in fact it's already six months ago. July last year, we published our review of AmigaOS 4.1 running on ACube's sam440ep motherboard, and here we are, six months later, and Hyperion has released AmigaOS 4.1 Update 1. This free update brings with it quite a number of new features, and since I still have the sam440ep on my desk, I could test the new features first-hand.

I believe the previous poster was referring that if you are going to ask a lot of monetary value from your customers, you better provide a product with a significant value propostion.

As it stands, requiring your customers to shell over a thousand bucks... just for the privilege of being beta testers of a platform which is generations behind in HW, even further behing in the SW department, with no killer applications (or any major apps really) to speak of, and which bear little resemblance for the original system it is supposed to trigger all those "melancholy impulses." All of that doesn't seem to be much in terms of providing significant value in exchange for the expense that getting this platform up and running entitles...
