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.

They should port it to PC hardware and be done with it. They could even buy something OEM like a custom cased eeebox and sell these with the system preinstalled, far more cost and time effective...

Big portions of Amiga OS are low level code, porting it to x86 would be pretty difficult... I don't think it worth the effort.

A complete alternative platform (hardware && software) is so sexy.... ;)
