Amiga & AROS A few weeks ago, Novell and Red Hat jointly fended off a patent infringement suit thrown their way by a patent troll. The patent in question more or less came down to the concept of virtual desktops - and thanks to Groklaw, several people helped in finding cases of prior art. The most interesting one of all? A carefully restored and working Amiga 1000 demonstrated to the judge and jury.

That was computing in the ’80s. It was not limited to just the Amiga.


In the case of amigaos it was computing in the 8Os, the 90s and up until 2001 when I stopped using one.

Anyway, how does it helps the case that "AmigaOS is one of the most advanced piece of software" despite being 26 years old?

Did you ever install a driver on Linux in the ’80s?

Considering that the first public version of the linux kernel was released in 1991, I'm pretty sure that no one ever did.
