Looks good. Very Amigaesqe. Which is nice because with the new hardware they could have gone another direction. Have they fixed the AmigaOne G4 bugs yet?

I forgot to mention that the default look is not 100% finished yet, they are still working on some minor details.

Note that these screenshots show antialiased fonts (sadly, the rescaled and jpeg'ed screenshots make this look rather "blurry") and Gradients - two features that were not publically mentioned yet.

There are no "G4 bugs". A certain competitor claims that there are such bugs, but he refuses to come up with any evidence. The G4 performs exactly as we expect it to perform - EOT.

There is a DMA bug, caused by a well known bug in the southbridge (VIA686B) which is not 100% fixed in the current Linux kernel - the next kernel build should fix this.

KOrodny! Where have you been man!

Re: screenshots... dunno what's with people and using ugly texture BGs on windos, but that aside, looking good. The gradients in the windows look kind of like WindowMaker

I wish I could run this on my Mac!

BTW, Kickstart Version 50.1? a new kickstart chip is needed?

Thumbs up


It looks really nice. I love the gradient effect on the windows. However it looks a bit too grey to me. I think a nice slighty cloudy grey/white would look nice. Like how the sky looks on an overcast day. It's looking really good though despite not a great deal of visual change from OS 3.9.

Oh okay then. From the information I saw it was specific to the G4 model. Hopefully it gets fixed then, I've been waiting for this thing for so long now and with OS 4.0 just around the corner... well, I can only wait so long.

I've been checking the screenshots for almost as long as they've been putting them up, and they just get better!

Don't forget, this is just the default look - you want colours and patterns and pictures? Go to prefs and tweak it!

Hope I get the Job I'm going for tomorow, coz if I do, it means that OS4 and full on G4 will be mine! Oh yes....
