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 don't know what are you replying to. You reply to no single point I made, trying to explain me things I might understand. I did not talk about snapshotting, nor AHI, nor anything you mention, so who are you trying to educate here?

I know exactly what I am talking about, so I persist - Tom imo did not live long enough with Amiga in order to better understand its philosophy, so just those things that seemed weird to him, overweighted possible positive experiences users had in the past. Judging from today's perspective of mainstream OSes - then Tom is of course absolutly right, but it is not imo all that fair. AmigaOS 4.1 does not pretend it belongs to first league - it is a reunion release for those still interested.

That is like turning on ZX Spectrum and complain it can't handle FullHD video :-) It just happened, that after all those years, AmigaOS is still developed, cause there's still a community around it. But Amiga today, is a complete niche, not even a market, just a hobby ...
