I guess so. Finding very specific hardware is always hard.

@Retro-Nerd: Sorry if we are bothering you, but you are free not to read it. Amigas future is up to it's users. And most of the time I don't post in forums mostly because of people like you, now do like the dude and chill, get a white russian and go smoke a joint...

Which future? The Amiga is dead since 1997. It still lives through some brilliant minds here like Toni Wilen, Wepl, Galahad, CFOU, Zetro and all the other nice guys here on EAB.

It's maybe better if you clown don't post in Amiga forums. Say/contribute something useful or go away.

I said something useful, you didn't. I'm not flaming/trolling anyone, you are. And you're making a clown of yourself acting that way. For someone who's 35 you're acting pretty childish.

Well, trying to run a dead OS on a dead machine IS pretty stupid and childish. You guys have your AOS4 forums, where you can discuss about "the future" of the Amiga. Strange folks...

Chill, guys. I don't see the problem with any threads on OS4, it's not everyone's cup of tea but if people want to talk about it then that's fine, surely? I mean, I'm not into this OS4 stuff at all but I have no problem with it because I accept that there are people who are interested in it.

That's not the point Graham. The whole thread, started by AmigaMac, isn't kosher.

...and comments like this are no good either

Please discuss the topic at hand without judging people who want to be involved.

I agree with what Damien said. People are well within their rights to discuss it if they wish. I do agree with this point but it doesn't mean it can't be talked about. No harm is being done, so for me there's not a problem.

I guarantee once this dies down, the weirdos will crawl back to the cyber-amiga-fanatic cave where they came from and not post here again.
And if anyone does no lie what I say, tough. Be a man about it and don't whine.

Hello to all the fellow amiga Manics on this board. Well to tell you
truth I got into this thread after reading a similar topic on the
Greek amigaHellas.net community (all hail brothers from there that may
reaidng this). I guess that there is a little noisse arround this
thread taking as a fact that the news have been spread quickly (faster
than the speed of light??) in other Amiga Forums all arround
(including Greek and Italian ones).

Well ok still no screenshots of the whole project running.. so I guess
we got to stick in an old Amiga rule that says "there is not such a
thing unless it is on your hard disk" and in the case of this loader
we got to expand this rule adding the line "and it is running". Got
the point? I guess so

The fact itself is very interesting. Yeap... OS4 running EVEN in a
MacMini which is a PPC mahcine isn't it? Perhaps this could be the
door that would drive to a possible situaiton of OS4 running on
Pegasos mahcines as well (PPC also). I may be a dreamer.. who knows...

The fact is that nothing is impossible... I have seen so many
platforms to be emulated in so many different types of machine and the
same is happening with you I suppose. Maybe this stuff with the OS4
running on a MacMini would mean nothing in 3 or 4 years but now that
the OS4 thing is still hot this thread is pointed as THE thread...

I would spend some valuable time rolling arround your nice forum and
keep searching for a PPC card to build that PPC Amiga system that
would make me available to buy a real copy of OS4 and run it.... You
see I have not a MacMini Wink! Wink!

Keep on the AMIGA way!
