Morphos Bright days ahead for the Amiga world. AROS is doing well, AmigaOS4 is getting one heck of a machine in the AmigaOne X1000, and MorphOS continues its development at a brisk pace. Version 2.6 of MorphOS, currently in development, will add support for (G4, I'm assuming) PowerMacs, which, alongside support for the Mac Mini and eMac, gives MorphOS a solid base of used hardware to run on.

There is atleast over 900 Amiga user either red, blue or black out there. Just check this map of where you find Amiga users worldwide:

http://map.minimig.net/

This is usefull to know because often Amigans get big rolling eyes. Often with comments like there is only 3 Amiga users left. But infact that map proves its over 900 of us worldwide and that map have been only active since last Wednesday when I posted on aw.net forum about it.

LOL, I hope you were't being serious. Otherwise it seems you completely missed the point that in the big scheme of things, when we're talking about a population of billions, 3 or 900 really are statistically equivalent.

Although it seems that at some point the die hard Amiga community and reality parted ways...

Indeed. There's probably more than 2000 DOS and windows < 98 machines still running in corporate environments and education/research. Mainly because software for it was expensive and they never found something which was really worth the switch to more recent operating systems, especially Windows NT flavors and their tendency to make everything that uses COM1 crash miserably.

Does that make them non-isolated people as the scale of the computer world ? Them who have a hard time with the simplest usb pen-drive around ?
