Can you see what I did there?

AmigaOS doesn't even have a web browser that can display modern web sites, so what's the point of it? Why would we want yet another closed source OS that brings nothing new?

I would steal it right away!

I just hope some oldschool cracking group releases it, that would be very cool!

Ignore.

Unless it was ported to x86...
...but AROS is free & getting close-ish to v1.0.

I would never fork out that kind of money for a PPC machine with an OS that has next to zer0 backwards compatibility, unless a definative list of respectable developers emerged and prove that it can truly be competitive in both the gaming AND productivity world..

I feel that today the Amiga is a hobby machine. Dreams of competing on the World stage are never going to be realised. These new Vapourware Amigas/OS are interesting and desirable as long as we accept this.

if you replace 'steal' with a more accurate description of what piracy is then I'll vote for it. Until then, I've gone with 'ignore'.

Ah, but piracy is perpitrated by jolly types with eye-patches going 'Arrah' & singing about rum & dead men's chests...
...while thieves steal stuff.

Ummm, where did my parrot go?
