Amiga & AROS Good interview with Steven Solie - this bit stood out to me: "Although Hyperion has been using serial numbers for copies of AmigaOS since 4.0, it won't reveal sales numbers. Solie's 'personal guess' is that the system has 2000-5000 users. 'If you include all the various Amiga clones and emulators we would probably be talking about around 10000 users [in] total,' he adds, 'it is really difficult to judge because a majority of the users are rather quiet.'" Fascinating number - lower than I anticipated.

Development too damn slow!

I would have paid for the hardware to run AmigaOS 4... if this was 2001. Just like I would have been impressed with the current Haiku if this was 2003, and I would love to have MorphOS running on my G5 PowerMac if this was 2009!

Development of all these operating systems is just too damn slow! I keep waiting and waiting, the years go by, and after all the waiting, there's more waiting to be done. Waiting for what... for the ability to run a buggy obsolete browser and nothing much else.
