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.

" 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..

@soulbender

..the "I got banned" part.

yes. that's part of the amiga experience it seems.

Amiga have a problem, about using and outdated API, but you cannot speak about it without getting banned.

I can't see things getting anybetter soon if ppl get banned from forum like this. Amiga has a small community of users. if you use Amiga you will need to get in touch with other amigans, asking for tips and tricks and howtos. and when trying to talk with them about problems you see, you might just get banned.. well not at first, first you get your posts censured and edited .. maybe deleted.. and if you try to explain, argue or protest, you get banned.

that's part of the amiga experience it seems, it's not about only me. lots of users got their post edited or deleted because their posts didn't please or could darken the OS image or i dunno what..

when using alternative OS you have to speak a bit about the "user experience i think. and that include the support and help you get on the forums.

like, if you buy a product, and there's a problem,
when you call for support if the man on the other side of the line tell you he doesn't know what you're speaking about, and the product does not have any problem and he won't answer your call anymore, would you find that normal ?

or in going in supermarket and being told what to buy and how to buy and if you protest being thrown out of the store.

well that's what happened. they thrown an user out, (me) cause i refused to accept the official version like "amiga rules everybody should buy it have not problems"

it have a problem and i really can't see why users should get banned from forum because they want to speak about thoses problems with other users and devs if they feel like answering. no one force them to post in a thread i would create ...
