The AROS Show has interviewed AROS and MorphOS developer Pavel ‘Sonic’ Fedin. He talks about his work on VESA, parallel.device API and more. When asked about AmigaOS 4, he replies: “Don’t know what to tell here, my opinion is split up. At the one hand it’s nice to see that someone develops something, and it’s just interesting by itself. At the other hand their politics seems very aggressive to me, they tend to ‘close up’ their community and ditch everyone else.”

Sounds like he has his head screwed on. I like his thoughts on the OS4 situation being overtly political. Seems to me, and many of the comment posters in the interview, that the guy is very open minded and that the Amiga scene needs more of his kind.
The OS4 situation is plainly silly, I was interested in AOS4 maybe 2 or 3 years ago. But I’m really tired about people still trying to advocate a proprietary platform.
AROS may not be as developed as morphos or aos4 but its the right way. …and I think what sonic is doing is great.
OS 4 and AROS is like the story of the tortoise and the hare.
While the hare gets held up by legal wranglings, buyouts and developer unrest, AROS the tortoise just plods along, unseen, to the finish line.
Even now, most of the Amiga crowd are watching the hare, as depressingly masochistic as that might be.
