Amiga & AROS After much, much development, the developers behind AmigaOS 4 have released the first alpha of Timberwolf, the AmigaOS 4 port of the Firefox web browser. I tried it out on my Amiga, and indeed confirmed that this is very much alpha material.

not by the browser itself but by the looks of the desktop in the screen capture. Didn't know AmigaOS was so advanced. Or has there been updates lately? I must confess I know strictly nothing about AmigaOS, where and when it stopped and whether there are developments still going on.

Porting any browser on any platform is a feat per se.

AmigaOS is much alive today (just check because people want to support it. People which uses it, love it so much, hehehe ;) If there was such love for Windows or MacOS then I am sure that world in 2010 would have looked way different. AmigaOS is the underground OS of all OS'es. It shows how a product can survive without any commercial interruptions. It shows that this is a product many have forgotten because of Commodore's misstakes.

Now today you have 4 Amiga communities which can live with each other or not ;) Classic AmigaOS upto 3.9, MorphOS 2.5, AmigaOS4 and AROS. The main difference between all of these AmigaOS'es and Windows/MacOSX/linux OS'es is that AmigaOS is driven by the heart I think. You have some unique software, which you don't find anywhere else. Like Aminetradio, Titler, Showgirls, fxpaint, SabreMSN, PolyOrga+++ but you also have other programs on other platforms that have been taken to the Amiga platform and made them even better. MPlayer, OWB, Timberwolf (will get AmigaOS UI), MAME and snes9x just to name a few.

Lots of sites care for the community:

Well, didn't know Amiga was so alive. But it still does not answer my question so I'll rephrase it: when was the last official AmigaOS released ? I'm wondering because the screen capture looks modern.
What hardware do these Amiga OSes run on?
