It stinks the way that computers and software have changed.
What's sad is when games are bug fests at release and have to receive a million patches. That games are big these days isn't sad, releasing shitty games is sad, has always been sad and will always be sad. The fact that games games can be gigabytes in size is fantastic, but it would be nice to see them do something else with that space than just add more gfx/snd.

The problem is speed and compatibility. If Aros was at least as fast as AOS3, and ran the same software, then it would be a different story. Of course, that's not so easily achieved.
