Amiga & AROS AmigaOS 4.0 for classic Amigas will go on sale November 30th (yes, this year). From the AmigaWorld.net news page: "On November 30 AmigaOS4 will ship for Classic Amigas. Hyperion Entertainment VOF made the announcement at the AmiWest banquet. The following will be included in the package: CD-ROM with AmigaOS4, one floppy disk to boot your Amiga (no pre-installed OS will be needed), and a manual."

Yesterday liberal party totally defeated right-wing populists in parliamentary elections after two years of their rule of my country (Poland), and I was already surprised by that (and in fact I'm very happy!) BUT two miracles in 24 hours is simply too much for me ;-)

Talking more seriously - I'm very sceptical, as always when it comes to "new Amiga things".

Well there is a market for OS4, not a big one, but there are plenty of classic Amigas still going out there.

I think people here are overly sceptical because they don't keep track of the various amiga companies, Hyperion actually have a pretty good track record when it comes to delivering updates to OS4.

Even if it turns out they can't make the date due to some unforeseen obsticale I think it's likely that it will be released this year.

Perhaps. Is there special software available somewhere to help people do this? :-P
