Amiga & AROS In a discussion on Amiga forum site The Amigans, the Friedens twin brothers (developers of AmigaOS 4.0 exec kernel) revealed that the complete Amiga OS architecture will move ahead to a new design. The new AmigaOS (let's call it AmigaOS 4+1) will include some sort of virtual environment in which old (AmigaOS 4.0) applications will run as separate tasks, in their own address space. MorphOS, an Amiga-like operating system, employs a similar method to allow for compatibility with older Amiga 3.x applications. AmigaWorld of course also discusses the matter.

Yeah, why?
Come on, this Amiga fiasco is like an 80's soap opera; it just goes on and on and on, getting worse by every new season. Yet, it's somewhat entertaining in all it's cheesy badness and you catch yourself catching up on it now and then.
