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 have to agree. Me and my Amiga friends never used the workbench for serious file management.

That is what the ├╝ber-powerful Directory Opus is for.

I really miss the different screen feature on Linux .. too bad current graphics card don't really support it.

I also agree that Aros is a good way to bring people to AmigaOS. Being FOSS will help work around the memory protection issues. The good thing about unproteted memory is that bugs show up REALLY FAST. So if you use well tested apps they will JUST WORK.

Awww, if only Commodore had made all the right choices with this gem instead of making all the wrong ones ;)
