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 don't see how you came from this


I don't think in it's current form the Amiga OS is going to become a serious contender as an alternative OS for a number of reasons...


to this


The fact is, Joe Citizen doesn't know or care. He needs to browse the internet and send emails, maybe the odd letter here or there, chatting, managing my music and photos and at times, creating a nice video or budgeting my home finances.


When did everything here became about the mythical average Joes, about money and market shares?

The crappy i386 netbooks are just fine for Joe Citizens and no one expects them to buy a machine that runs AmigaOS. Heck, even Linux was too much for them.
