Amiga & AROS "Hyperion Entertainment VOF and ACube Systems SRL are pleased to announce that they have entered into an OEM license agreement which will allow ACube to offer its customers an OEM version of Hyperion's AmigaOS 4.1 operating system for their SAM440 range of motherboards. Prospective customers wishing to beta-test the near final OEM version of AmigaOS 4.1 for the SAM 440ep will be afforded the opportunity to do so and will subsequently receive the full version. Orders can be placed as of now with ACube. A first public demonstration of AmigaOS 4.1 for SAM440ep is scheduled for the upcoming exhibition Pianeta Amiga in Empoli, Italy on September 27-28, 2008." Update by TH: Due to all the massive cheering and excitement going on in the OSNews Boardroom and our company yacht, we actually forgot to link to the official announcements here and here.

@ Biffuz

I would rather spend money on a _real_ Amiga from eBay.

Please define what you believe it is for a "real" Amiga nowadays...

Classic Amigas are real Amigas...

AmigaOnes are real Amigas too...

Amithlon is an emulated Amiga on a PC, but it predates the entire machine no wINDOWS ALLOWED, so it is a PSEUDO-Amiga running on Intel X86...

Only WinUAE emulated amigas are NOT REAL Amigas... but SURE they work, even if these are limited to OS 3.9...

The only real Amigas are the classical ones. The A1 is not much more than a PPC processor with some PC components attached, like later PPC Macs, but at least the Macs come with a custom - and sometimes sexy - cabinet.

Real Amigas are "Classic" Amigas, the ones with 68k hearts. Anything else is NOT an Amiga. The AOne is a joke.
