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.

I think that AmigaOS and the "Amiga World" as a whole is just not for you.

You are right, at the moment it's hard to see why to buy a system like that for these kind of prices. But, you know what? Ten years ago I said the same thing about Apple users. Much too expensive hardware, for some elitist Media Agency dweebs.

Well, we know now, things changed.

Those dweebs persisted, Jobs came back, things turned around.

And yet, even these days I have discussions with people, telling me "why should I pay 1000 Euros for a Macbook Pro, if i can get almost the same thing for 400 if I buy a Windows machine?".

You can probably build your dream PC for 100 Euro, or our of some trash and put a freeware OS on it.
That doesn't mean other people are not willing to pay more money for their computers and OS.

And who are you to tell them what to do or not.

I am not in any way saying, btw, that Amiga will ever be a "force to be reckoned with again". Nothing is indicating this.

But, it seems things are finally getting a lot better lately, and that's what counts for Amigans these days.

So who are you to rain on that small parade?
