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 will never get why Hyperion refuse to support Apple ppc hardware. It is cheap and easily available. The old mantra "no license, no hw documentation" seems rather void to me, when the license issue has obviously resolved and the MorphOS guys just showed that enough hw documentation is available.
I run MorphOS on hardware (Mac mini G4 1.5 GHz) I obtained for the price of a nettop and which has compareable hardware specs, but just flies, fies, flies due the fast MorphOS.
Next MorphOS release will include support for the big box G4 powermacs, which are dirt cheap. I would suggest Hyperion to go a similar route with OS 4.1.
