It is not like Windows where every update is worse than the one before :-/

>And for some strange reasons 68k software partly runs on both Aros (68k) and MOS but not 4.1... weird world. Could it be that they also changed a lot of things and dropped compatibility... questions over questions

I find many programs will run on OS3.9, OS4.1 and MOS but not AROS x86. The changes in OS4.1 are mostly different APIs to access the same functionality. With AROS x86 the functionality is just missing.

>things you have no clue of.

I've installed and run it several times but as it is incomplete and has hardly any software for it I didn't find it of use and don't think it represents the most viable path for the Amiga going forwards. There is no need to flame me for just pointing that out; I don't hold you or any single person personally responsible.
Strange... I have hundreds of programs for it including word processors like Final Writer, Raytracers and so on. Most compatible programmed software runs on it without problems. I assume you talk about X86 now, we here discussed about 68k. And I know there pretty good what is working and what is not working... Most 68k software works on X86 either, just that you have to use UAE for it. But that is the price to pay if you want something improved. MOS devs have announced too that they will use UAE for 68k. Solutions like Petunia simply would require too much work.

I think you guys do not understand it or do not want to understand it... at least on 68k it feels for software like running in 3.1 so you do NOT need special aros software on it. Thus there is plenty of software available...

regarding amiga users... facebook group "commodore amiga" has more than 11.000 users, much more than on amigamap. If that are users depends on definition, I assume majority uses emulation
