Amiga & AROS There is kind of a stir in the Amiga community. As Hyperion employees explained in an IRC chat, Hyperion suffers from a lack of hardware for the development (and thus sales) of AmigaOS4. However, what about Genesi? Genesi is the company behind the ODW, a PPC workstation that could potentially be the solution to Hyperion's lack-of-hardware problems. However, friction between the two companies is preventing them from coming to an agreement. More from the community here, and here. My take: I find this a rather silly situation. It is quite clear that Genesi is one of the few companies capable of offering a steady flow of PPC hardware for the AmigaOS, yet things in the past are preventing a financially interesting cooperation. And who suffer? Exactly-- Amiga fans.

Is there any way to get into the new AmigaOS and not have to deal with all this endless political rambling that only a handful of people understand?

Your best bet would probably be Amiga Forever from Cloanto or AROS. You can't get AmigaOS 4 as it's not for sale yet.

A MorphOS ODW might meet your needs unless you have a particular attachment to OS4.

$799 for a preinstalled ODW. $50 of that goes to MorphOS, via General Fund at Morphzone Bounties.
