Really? have you LOOKED at the actual numbers?
It has greatly increased the number who have bought licenses.
And there is no official number for the people that just use the 30 minute demo.
And do you really think the number of active OS4 users is that much higher?
In either case, total combined numbers are likely several thousand.
While not mainstream, looks pretty successful to me.
Certainly higher than the number of FPGA boards that running OS3.X.
Migrating to X64 will take a few years.
And, btw, MorphOS will be there before OS4.
In the meanwhile, we have SAM460 support, will have X5000 support, and will probably NOT be dumb enough to support Tabor.
Because, to an extent, will will overpay for hardware, just not crappy hardware.
Which might explain why the second board for our OS dropped the Artica S, while Amigans had to put up with what was it 3 boards from MAI using their flawed product?
Old AmigaOnes, now there is sad.
Thankfully, A-eon and Varisys have had a pretty good run (until this latest bomb was dropped on us).
Regarding user numers for MorphOS / Aros
I used this:
-->Statistics MorpOS --> MorpOS global chart..
Maybe its not accurate, but its better than guesses or any other info I have.
