Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

I agree. They are great operating systems. But something is wrong when you advocate Amiga/derivatives as something for everyone yet dismiss Linux as something you need a degree in computer science to use...
Of course it should be read as:
I know AmigaOS but not Linux, I don't want to have to learn something new, I like my old machine.

Switching systems isn't an easy task if you want to know how to use them. If surfing the web is all you care for then it's fine.

(Though back in the 68k days on the Amiga that wasn't so easy since it neither had a network interface, drivers for it or a built-in tcp/ip-stack ..)
