Amiga & AROS The Amiga world is an interesting one to follow. As an outsider, it is almost impossible to fully understand all the processes at work over there. The various companies, the individuals, the developers, The Three Men And A Cow who own an AmigaOne - they are not making it any easier. The past few weeks have seen quite a few news items regarding the Amiga platform. Did they help in creating a clearer picture of where the Amiga stands?

Focus on the option that is open source, unencumbered by legal issues, available now, runs on standard hardware, and can really use your time and devotion: AROS. At this point in time, that is where the future of the Amiga platform lies.

Yes, AROS not better that Windows 95, cool stuff indeed. :-)

About the unstable CruxPPC port:
The port was not released at the show so you cannot complain about the unstable nature as you would do with a released product (like you are doing here).
The port was finished a few hours before the show so instead of whining you should applause the work done by the CruxPPC team.

And how does that affect the sam440ep premise of the article, namely that 500 EUR for a board that does not run OS4, and has an unstable Linux port is an awful lot of money?

Hard work does not make the sam440ep any less of a letdown. It's fairly useless at the moment - no matter how harsh that sounds.
