Speaking of Amiga, Mark Round has written a great blog post about running old AmigaOS 3.x software on AmigaOS 4, and the best ways to do so.
While I’ve been having a lot of fun with the new software written specifically for AmigaOS 4, the bulk of my software is still â€œclassicâ€ titles that used to run on my A1200. One of the first things I did when I set up my X5000 was to transfer my old Amiga’s hard drive over so I could continue running this library of software. I also wanted to set up an emulation of my A1200 so I can quickly launch a classic Workbench 3.9 session and pick up all my old projects and bits of code I’d written over the years.
Fortunately, the X5000 and AmigaOS 4 offers a variety of ways of running all your old software.

I wish HP-UX VUE would get a reboot; I love CDE and VUE was pre CDE and had some really nice bits I miss.
