Amiga & AROS It's really been an Amiga week, hasn't it? As such, it seems only fitting to close this week off with some seriously epic news from the Amiga community. As most of you will know, Hyperion and Amiga, Inc. have been embroiled in a tough legal battle over the distribution and development rights of the AmigaOS, and all its associated trademarks. The epic news is that this situation is now completely and utterly resolved.

I have to agree. A small OS company can't possibly support all the thousands or millions of hardwares of x86 configurations out there.

If they focus on the PPC or ARM platform, they might find a profitable niche of users.

just because they go x86 doesn't mean they have to go full support for every piece of crap out there.

look at apple, they've decided to only support intel and only really core 2 duo/quad and up.

the big issue will be trying to use any sort of recent graphics card with a working driver. i really don't see that happening at all unless they get a wrapper going.

Better to target SoC systems. It's better for a small OS to be something Windows can never be.
