I'm sure all 7 users of Amiga OS4 will be delighted with this news! They will finally be able to run all the applications and games that have been released for it.

*Yawn*

Whatever, it must be fun to knock people's efforts in keeping what was once a lot of fun, alive and not letting it die completely.

There is such a thing as dying with dignity. But of course it's been too late for that for years, so carry on.

There's also something about not letting something good disappear altogether.

Does it yet use the SCSI controller on a BlizzPPC board? (That's why I haven't got a copy yet - why buy an OS that doesn't support one of the best controllers ever put in a PPC machine?)

The Bottom line is that if you can run the OS, buy the OS if you love the OS. If you think its a waste of time and money, don't buy the OS. If you realise you will never be able to run the OS through hardware you don't have that others do have, then forget the OS.

Its better than nothing, and for those you can run it, its quite something.

@Amiga Inc: GET FUCKED

@Hyperion: I can't run OS4 but THANK YOU

I'd love to have a play but with no hardware available what's the point?

Why don't they do the right thing and put it on either classic or make it compatible with x86 architecture? That way the market for it would go through the roof and be a contender against all OS's

I'm glad for the Amiga guys out there who were sick of the poison Amiga Inc. spread with their worthless lives. Good, Hyperion, you guys won, and did the hard work. Now make some money.

Er sadly the court case isn't over yet,it hasn't even gone to trial :-(

I'm 43 soon, I wonder if I'll live long enough to see new Hardware and new Amiga OS on sale hand in hand.

Probably not.

They did that back in 1990. You'll never see it again

About OS4.1: Not for me, but you have to admit it's coming along nicely. I at least admire that they have the oomph to work on this. I'm guessing they're not a very big team and yet this OS is becoming as nice looking and, it seems, as functional as OSes made by huge companies!

I especially liked the Python prompt <3

Both points are very good, better future for it than it has now. Maybe they just hobbyists of coding it. Not in it for business or the money pontential it could generate.
