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.

As I remember the workbench was more for starting your programs and less for file-managment, even in the Amiga days. I remembering carefully aranging icons of my programs and utilities and snapshot them in positions and Windows so I could open them in a few clicks. I never opened the data folders. Dopus (Directory Opus) was for the heavy Filemanagment and what a file-manager it was, never had a equivalent since, miss it.
