Keeping Informed...

Anybody know of any good introductions to the Amiga/Morphos/World?

I've looked up wikipedia entries on morphos and amiga, and feel a bit more informed, but...I'm still left wondering "What's new/different/unique?"

I'm an OS fan. I've played with Macs/Nixes/Be/React/Haiku etc etc etc.

Anybody know of a good primer? A begginer's guide? Heck, a history of Amiga and the attractions behind it?

Thanks!

Hum, I don't know what you want to know?

I have a couple of links on http://del.icio.us/aliquis/amiga?page=5 but I don't know how much they will help someone who doesn't know amiga from the begining.

New? Probably not much today, datatypes maybe?
Different? Single user, no memory protection, screens, very fast on low end hardware (well, not at encoding dvds maybe but on just using the interface and doing os related stuff.)
Unique? It's the only OS which makes computing fun.

I guess it's like Be but with more software? ;D
