OSNews, Generic OSes When new operating systems gets designed today, great systems such as Amiga, Atari and VMS, seems to get overlooked in regard to their original features not found on other OSes. It might be time to collect and categorize those special unique features under the great/lost ideas wiki, so new OSes don't have to re-invent the wheel and re-innovate.

And AmigaOS 4, and AROS...

...but the shame remains, Amiga should have been more successful, from a technical standpoint. But it fell back too early in the race, stood still for years, and today is without any hope of even staying in the same lap as the rest.

Sorry, Nate, but that's the state of affairs. :.-(
