OSNews, Generic OSes Oh. My. God. When I read this, and browsed the website, my face went like this. Do you remember the Amiga? That fun little computer that was miles ahead of its competition, but in recent years has been dragged through the mud by one shady figure after the next? Here's a new one: Amiga, Inc., the one 'run' by Bill McEwen, has partnered with a company called IContain to slap the Amiga logo on a bunch of low-end, incredibly sad products. Whether this is another shady deal I don't know, but worthy of the Amiga? I don't think so. I'm not putting this in the Amiga category, by the way. I refuse to. Forget it. It's going into our generic category. Fitting. Update: As was pointed out over at, not only are these nothing more than brandless OEM products with Photoshopped logos, the website itself is just a standard, unmodified WordPress theme. Oi. Doesn't instil a lot of confidence, now, does it?

AmigaOS is good

Member since:

I had the chance of visiting a nearby fair where they were showing AmigaOS4.1.1 (in september 2009) and was mesmerized to find out it still was 10 times more responsive than MacOS running on HW several times faster (near RTOS I kid you not).
Additionally, there are still several things/modus operandi today that I cannot understand why they weren't "copied" in Windows/MacOS, so I would still very much like to get a fully boxed Amiga machine (hope the AmigaONE X1000 won't be delayed further).
The developers have expressed the intention of introducing in AmigaOS what's missing, while whats still missing in other OSs (several things if your're in the know) wasn't introduced in the last 20 years, and will never be.

As for the above icontain c**p...please...
