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.

MultiUser? E-a-s-y

AmigaOS4 is v-e-r-y easy to use in a multiuser enviroment!

Simply setup hardware without any hard drives installed.
Issue each authorised User with a USB Pendrive (200Mb - 1Gb size range) and each user will have a separate computing enviroment.

The Users can carry their account & work in their pocket.

My existing WB partitions are 250Mb and 185Mb in size.

With a simple solution for multi-utency you can add multiuser access into UBOOT, so any user could access his/her partition and even create partitions encrypted and protected by password...

It is not like having real multi-user access, but it is sure an easy way to implement it into AmigaOS.
