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.

So what

I for one am glad that Hyperion finally released AmigaOS4. You don't need a PhD in computer science in order to get anything done in it like you do with Linux AND the Amiga OS does NOT treat you like an idiot like every version of Windows since Windows 95 does. Granted the security of AmigaOS is a joke, but it was NEVER meant to be a multi-user OS running client-server applications across a network. I for one will not miss the various hardware issues I keep having with Linux, nor will I miss the spyware and virii and the looming DRM garbage coming down the road via Windows. If these are the best OS's out there, then everyone is paying too high a cost in order to sit on the bleeding edge of technology.

"but it was NEVER meant to be a multi-user OS running client-server applications across a network"

in other words, you're fine as long as you don't use the internet ;)

Otherwise, anyone can access your computer
