Hey, I have an Icaros 1.3 VM in KVM I use somewhat often. The more I learn about Amiga history, the more I think Linux got off lightly with just Microsoft and SCO as the main opponents.

To be sure, Amiga faced stiff competition, but frankly the worst enemy it faced was Commodore itself. Poor (European market) or non-existent (North American market) marketing, failure to keep pace with the competition in terms of hardware and the failure to create any sort of system to really fill the gap between the low-end "game console with a keyboard" A500/600/1200 systems and the high-end workstations (A1000/2000/3000/4000) are all problems of Commodore's own making.There was no "shadowy cabal" that stood in opposition to the the Amiga. Bad corporate decision making killed it without any outside help.

Ha ha. So true, Thom, so true..

Hey, I haven't seen any of the Atari Cold Fire Project posts on here, there's an alternate niche OS for ya.

http://acp.atari.org/

They have hardware actually!

I tend to agree with some, AmigaOS 4.x is even niche of the niche. Not enough hardware to run it. AmigaOS 3.x is more exciting to me (and I think most Amiga users). For other hardware or next-gen AmigaOS I would tend to think Aros is the most interesting, MorphOS needs more hardware support, and then it'll be cool. But Aros is awesome 'cause it's a recreation using open source.

ColdFire's not the only one! They're writing drivers for AmigaOS 3 and AROS m68k, and there are boards being built now.
