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.

Snapshot didn't work for me, nor should it have to. The idea of a spatial file manager (or any file manager, for that matter) is that it does it by itself.


That's true for any other operating system. For the average Amiga user, it's your duty to tell the OS you want that window behaving ALWAYS like that.

Anyway, it's a good and amusing review. You have expressed exactly the doubts I'd expect from people accustomed to nowadays operating systems. AmigaOS is quite different and imposes a completely different paradygms when writing applications and handling the deskt... workbench. You have to get accustomed to them. They aren't easy or comfortable to understand: that's part of the game. The only issue with them, however, is that they just feel... old.
