Amiga & AROS Sure, we have AmigaOS and MorphOS, but those cost money and require special hardware. For those of us more interested in running an Amiga-like operating system on regular, x86 hardware, there's AROS. Two AROS distributions, Icaros Desktop and AspireOS both saw new releases recently.

I just can't over the fact that a recreation of an ancient OS will probably be able to display HTML5 (not even a finished standard) before it can print

....and that is even what people are now expecting


It can print.

From the summary: Most importantly, there's the first parts of a printing system. Currently, printer.device only support PostScript printers, and only a few programs are ready to use it.

If you would like to summarize that by "It can print" then you have lost all sense of reality (although you are not technically wrong)

Yes, and it's specified almost everywhere (on the Icaros website I openly talk about initial printer support, ps printers support, ps file printing support, nothing more, nothing less: you just need to read). If I summarize with "it can print" I am technically right: it can print. Something, with just a couple of applications, with selected printers. Or to a ps file anyway. But it CAN print and it can do that in the real world, not in fantasyland. Proper extension of printing system is expected in the next months.
