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 hve no problem with XMos, it's interesting stand alone technology, but what I can't fathom is what is the purpose of the expensive microprocessor board A-Eon wants to graft to it. I mean they

1) aren't on the bus and can't really access memory
2) can't do floating point
3) Would take 256 of them to reach the computing power of a good core 2 duo.

Somebody really hasn't thought this out, beyond this are cool let's stick them onto our machine.
