Amiga & AROS "The Timberwolf team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the first beta version of Timberwolf 4.0.1. Timberwolf is an AmigaOS web browser based on Firefox/Mozilla technology. This technology is more than just a browser, it is an enabling technology, bringing powerful tools such as html5, WebM, JavaScript, XUL, and more to AmigaOS 4.x. These are the building blocks for other applications as well, such as the email client 'Thunderbird' or the media center 'Songbird'. This first beta release includes almost the full functionality of the browser, allowing style-sheet enabled web browsing, secure connections, use of Firefox add-on and more."

What's interesting here is how, on a website about OSes where things like Puppy Linux are applauded for running on ancient x86 hardware, that running a different OS on similar vintage hardware seems to make some people (such as bassbeast) angry. Seriously, what's your problem? You haven't even read up on this - OS4 is supported, there are regular updates, and it runs on hardware which is being manufactured and sold new today.

Why the hate? Why is it that Windows, OS/2, Haiku, and the various Linux distros are ok, but AmigaOS constantly gets trolled? Please tell me why it upsets you so. Did you get a wedgie from an Amiga owner in school or something?

FWIW, I find my OS4 box far more usable than my Haiku box.
