Amiga & AROS So we finally meet! You can't imagine how hard I've tried to get my hands on a machine that could run AmigaOS 4 in all its glory. I've never used the Amiga before - not during its heydays, and not during its afterglow - so it meant an unexplored world for me. You can imagine my excitement when ACube Systems, makers of the sam440ep board that runs AmigaOS 4.1, offered a review machine to me, built around their own PowerPC sam440ep flex motherboard.

I really enjoyed the review of my childhood OS from a considerate "outsider".

On icon positions - I remember carefully setting up my icons to a design and selecting "snapshot" - too easy to move them and mess them up later.

Of course these were the days where I only had a few dozen files on a floppy. It made sense to care for them individually.

I'd put this behavior in the "alien legacy" not "broken" category.
