Amiga & AROS "Hyperion Entertainment is very pleased to announce the immediate availability (for registered AmigaOne customers) of Amiga OS 4.0, The Final Update. Originally released in May of 2004, Amiga OS 4.0 is the most stable, modern and feature-rich incarnation to date of the multi-media centric operating system launched by Commodore Business Machines (CBM) in 1985 with which it still retains a high degree of compatibility. Amiga OS 4.0, The Final Update is the culmination of 5 years of development and takes the form of a stand-alone ISO image which contains a full installation of all Amiga OS 4.0 components. A list of new features can be found here. Availability of PowerPC hardware suitable for operation with Amiga OS 4.0 will be announced by third parties early 2007." Together with Microsoft selling Linux and Apple switching to Intel, this is the definitive proof that hell is now officially frozen. I sure know I'm taking ice skates with me to the grave.

I bet you only knew Amiga OS 1.x. Version 2 was rather pretty (especially compared to the arse-ugly Windows 3.1 of that time. A few of us had Graphic cards back then (which where rather uncommon in Amigas since most people just stuck with amiga native graphics chipset) and with an picasso graphics card, amiga os 3 together with MUI it was realy beautifull.

And an UI i can think of that was even uglyer than Amiga OS 1.x was RISC OS, the definately uglyest OS ever concieved. With those horrible patterns stuck to everything RISC OS looked like it was designed by an 6 year old (IMHO).
