Amiga & AROS It seems like only yesterday, but in fact it's already six months ago. July last year, we published our review of AmigaOS 4.1 running on ACube's sam440ep motherboard, and here we are, six months later, and Hyperion has released AmigaOS 4.1 Update 1. This free update brings with it quite a number of new features, and since I still have the sam440ep on my desk, I could test the new features first-hand.

Looks like the Amiga is poised to once again become a serious contender in the alternative OS market!

If you're not including Linux and OS X (despite them still only have a tiny market shares in terms of desktop installs), then yes I agree.

However Amiga has got a long way to catch up with Linux (which can also run on PPC as well as x86) let alone OS X.
So I can't see Amiga being a serious contender to anyone but the hobbyist and enthusiast (at least not in the near future).
