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.

Thom,

Are you sure that "microkernel" wasn't coined before Amiga Exec was created? I know QNX existed before Amica Exec, and I vaguely remember the terms "modular kernel" and "microkernel" being bandied around before Amiga, but perhaps my memory deceives me.
