Amiga & AROS

Viva Amiga is a wonderful look at the the history of the platform, the people who built it, and the users who loved it. The opening title says it all: "One Amazing Computer. One chance to save the company. One chance to win the PC wars." This message sets the stage nicely for a dramatic and passionate tale.

You can watch the documentary online, but it isn't free.

of course I went to os4depot, the first thing I did was install Jack. Sorry, there just isn't much going on on the Amiga, compared to what was available as a NeXT user. It compares far less favorably to mac.

It's easier to list the things Amiga OS 4.1 can do than all the things it can't. Having an mp3 player and an IRC client is not a real big selling point unless you're 15, so go ahead and mention the quake port too. Can I watch Netflix and Hulu on an Amiga? Is there a productivity suite on Amiga? Can I manage and run virtual machines on one? Is there a media server for Amiga? Can I cast/airplay from one to my home theater processor? The list goes on and on. These are all things I can do on the mac. Or on a linux box.
