I can't run it, but I like the box, and the fact we waited so long might just buy it anyhow, might be worth something in years to come (hopefully)

Be like all those people who baught Windows 95 and never even had a PC now thats effective marketing, Amiga inc really needs to follow that example

I dont see any practical benefit from it...

It can only run on PPC (pointless proprietary chipset) thats locks a user into an incredibly limited path.... bah... this argument has been done to death already...

just gimmie the source and i will compile the fucking thing for x86! thats what us miggy vets want.... an afordable, robust real-time os that has a transparent 68k /ocs-ecs-aga emulation! thats what we damn want not some fucking 10 year old hardware that met its match by the fucking power of my mobile phone!

bah.... getting pissed of going over it....

big whoop for hyperon IF they get it realeased... only because (if i am lucky) it fucks A.Inc i the arse..... other than that i just dont give a .... fucking flying..... shhhh.... boing ball... :/

Zetro, we already had it. Then in-fighting between the main developer and his sidekick snatched it from our hands.

Yes, I'm talking about Amithlon. The only "neo-Amiga" product I saw any future in. Amiga on x86. 68k and x86 code running side by side in harmony. PCI/AGP access. Accelerated drivers for a few common graphics boards. All RTG software ran without modification.

Yes, I *bought*, not pirated it. I believed in it so much. Not long after that, they cancelled it, made it illegal to sell and started the lawyer game.

Now we can never have it. The fastest most compatible Amiga ever. Not ours.

Someone plunk a shitload of cash on Bernie Meyer, Umilator is what is still the future of the Amiga, not OS4, not MorphOS. AROS is close to the dream, but Amithlon/Umilator was THERE.

Throw cash on Bernie or a 68k emulator for AROS. Perhaps the latter is even a better idea?

well then if amiga os4 is coming, then its time to shake up all hardware manufacturers, to start en to make ppc accelerator cards, for desktop 1200 and towered amiga's, what ever happened to the powervixen LT from ack?? And yes to be honest, you are right i allso want to see amiga os4 for x86 processors..if that becomes reality the amiga community gets a big boost...

What I understand is that it will use Picasso96 so that must mean we can't use BVision PPC + Cybervision PPC cards?

Just asked a question about it at a sedish amiga forum where some members are beta testers

that would be insane! at least b/c-vision should have support, they are both companions to the ppc accelerators! not to mention how furstrating is the missing g-rex support! they claim that they don't support it because of documentation lack....!

If OS4 sees the light of day and we can buy it I bet people will write drivers somehow

And I will get my thumbs out of my ass and start using my G-rex 4000

I'm sorry but "Classic" to me uses a 680x0 chip and not PPC (I sold my PPC cuz it is pointless!)

I'm not saying OS4.0 should support 68k chips, I feel PPC is not CLASSIC amiga
