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.

How did you manage the 692x482 resolution with more than 4 colors on an A500?


Overscan and 3.0 ROM. Overscan goes up to 720x482, but 692x482 is the maximum size I can get on an NTSC 1080 monitor. It's possible to get the same overscan using 1.3 ROM, but 4 colours is the maximum - unless you use a fancy copper rainbow program, like in this WB 1.3 screenshot:
