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.

Short: You're wrong.

Long: The A4000 had it's CPU on a "CPU board", plugged into a special extension slot. The first A4000 did have a 68030 CPU, later models had a 68LC040. Never did Commodore produce 68060 boards, although they were available from third parties.
