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.

Great to hear about the new hardware. Looks like the Amiga is poised to once again become a serious contender in the alternative OS market!

Unfortunately the big mistake they made was embracing PPC - they would have been better off going to ARM so that rather being on a dying platform they would be position on something that is just taking off. When one takes into account the dual core ARM processors coming on board, the graphics platform being developed by Nvidia - it would have been a lot better for them to go in that direction than embracing PPC.
