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.

That's it, i got banned. all my post on Amigans.net got deleted and this is what's displayed instead:

---------
This user has been permanently suspended, for these reasons:

- Failing to understand the phrase "It's not what you are saying, it's how you say it"

- Lying about why (s)he was moderated.

- Continously ignoring the advice given from moderators.

nice.. someone interested in joining Amiga community?
thinking about getting an Amiga?
first you can't, since no hardware is available.
but if you manage to find second hand AmigaOne, here how you'll get treated when discussing OS features or problems on forums.

Remember, never say it's outdated , or it xyz feature should get implemented, even if this xyz feature is planned for later update ;)
Never discuss moderators behavior.. they're now saying i'm a liar ;)

Anyway i kept a local copy here:

http://amifreak.free.fr/Amigans/

click on viewtopic * .php.html files.

just in case some ppl memory need to be refreshed if accidentaly "forgeting" how it really happened.

Welcome to the Internet, enjoy your stay. Seriously, what is this even doing on OSNews?
Besides, everyone knows the rapid, reality-defying tendencies of the Amiga crowd.

nice.. someone interested in joining Amiga community?"

No.

" Seriously, what is this even doing on OSNews? "


It's about news and stuffs, concerning OSes right?
so that's why it's here. To let ppl know that Amiga didn't evolve much since 1993, to let them know it have this and that problems.. such as no css capable browser, no utf8 and no MP, and that's it's extremly flaky, crash prone.. things like that, and when you try to discuss it on Amiga public forums you get banned.

It's an insider view of AmigaOS, you get it for free, and you can make up your mind about Amiga, in case you would want to know more about Amiga, or try to buy one.
And it's objective.. not like other "official" reviews that says Amiga rules and you should buy one right now.

I could write a full review with tests, screenshots and details if asked.

that's what "this" is doing on OSNews.
If you're not interested you might want to choose to read other news items and other users comments.

like, i'm not interested in windows news and it's users comments ..but i don't ask why it's here. it's here because it news and stuffs about OSes i guess..

You are not interested in joining Amiga community, you are not interested in purchasing an Amiga...

So Why the hell are you trolling, commenting as a stupid on this Amiga related thread, while there are more interesting thread on OSNews aimed at the platforms you love that are waiting for your priceless presence?

Are you not interested in Amiga? So don't partecipate Amiga threads and don't bother us anymore...

Talk about offtopic, who cares if you got banned on an entirely different forum?

@BluenoseJake

can you read the previous post i made please ? i answered that question already.. why it matters.. if ppl want to get into Amiga they'll encounter that kind of problem too.

not that i care that much, i have this AmigaOne but it's not my primary machine, i use linux 99% of the time.
I bought that AmigaOne for fun, to follow evolution of the OS.. which isn't happening much anyway. So i started inquiering aboout it and it all started.

@ __xoram__
i understand what you say, and it's true.
but inquiring about memory support already gets ppl moderated (in most case) and banned (in my case).
now if we ask for both multiuser and MP in the same time i think they'll go berserk ;)


@rafaelle

yes it's true it's not the first time i inquiered about utf8 support and MP status on Amiga. i ask time to time, and i'm not the only one. same for MP. this is a recurent debate. which is not progressing much.
can't see it happening anytime soon, unfortunately.

and as long as thoses aren't implemented that AmigaOne is almost useless for me.

You'll probably find OSNews much more to your liking, then. Perhaps you can join forces with the fellow who constantly harps about kernel bugs in Haiku, or the guy who used to make endless posts about ZETA's legality. Combined with Moulineuf's "BSD is teh EVIL" hobby-horse, I'm sure you'll be unstoppable.
