You have the right to be very happy indeed if they release it also for an even obsoleter machine. But what do they hope to achieve by that? $?

That's what no-one can understand. To try to sell a computer with no OS would be a tough sell, but an OS with no computer?????
What are they thinking?

There are, but not being much of a linux lover I never even bothered trying to install one. I think they all very old, don't even know if they run X, nevermind Gnome or something that modern.

Personally I don't see what the point would be running CLI based 1.2 Kernal Linux on some 500 accelerator stuck onto a 25 quid 1200, when a new 525 computer would run Ubuntu Rapant Rabbit acceptably well.

But then I don't think I'd go onto a forum and slag them off for trying, so if you get it running, good for you!

You know... I'm just thinking loudly here.....

How hard would it be for Amiga to license a "prt" of OS4.x for the Wintel market?

If needed... mayhaps an Intel-compiled ROM on a PCI addoncard, which would be required to run the OS on you bog standard IBM-PC? (I have no doubt some person would hack and slash and make the addoncard "emulated" on a file on the HD at some point, but still ) For the initial graphics... heck, both X and Windows are nowadays capable of showing 1600*1200*32bit, completely unaccelerated. Then you could mayhaps get AmigaOS4 drivers for .... say... ATI Radeon series? (Seeing as ATI is supposed to be easier to obtain required data from to make drivers than nVidia)

Then... on the addon card... some kind of sound emulation system, nothing fancy... Soundblaster 128 would be sufficient for "starting the OS with sound" then I believe Aminet's "Hard/Drivers" drawer would be crammed with homemade drivers for other cards after a short while. Then with these new (AHI compliant?) sound drivers and card, you could disable the addoncards' builtin one.

And of course... don't forget, WinUAE comes around with AmigaOS4UAE and integrates almost seemlessly :P

I really don't see the big problem, other than to get the neccessary license and someone to do the dirty work of the porting.
