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.

>or the tcp stack itself, which hasn't been updated for what... 8 years ?


ehr... rewritten from scratch ... by the way Amiga had a real TCP stack with IP filtering, scripting control, ftp folders as system folders in directory tree, etc... while Windows was still dreaming to have at least some coherent connection code, leaking and sharing your folders with the whole internet... ;)

>So you don't really care if your computer takes 1min or 30sec to boot... really...

if you install some software (servers & services + a firewall) and use it for a couple of years without reinstalling it every some months, like my 3.2 GHz Windows XP machine, you are lucky if it will completely boot in 5 minutes ;) (I'd reinstall it but I'm scared about having to reinstall all the software again - my entire UAE install with OS 3.9 + all software and data took just half an hour on the same machine, sigh!)
