AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition available as digital download

Brussels, December 17, 2015

Hyperion Entertainment CVBA is very happy to announce the immediate availability of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic for purchase as digital download.

In close cooperation with Cloanto Italia srl, well known for their Amiga Forever and C64 Forever lines of products, this is the first step and testbed for Hyperion Entertainment towards offering gradually its full line of products as digital downloads in addition to the traditional distribution of physical products through the existing dealer network.

To offer the best possible shopping experience to our customers and following the experience of our partners, Avangate was chosen as fulfillment partner to take care of the whole purchase process in the most secure manner possible and allows to offer several local payment options to customers all over the world.

Customers of the digital download version of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic get an archive containing
  • ISO9660 image of the installation media,
  • ADF image of the bootfloppy disk,
  • PDF of the DVD cover,
  • PDF of the CD label,
  • PDF of the booklet and
  • the serial number in confirmation mail,
which enables them to produce their own backup media including the official artwork*.

After successful completion of the test phase, interested dealers will be welcome to become part of the affiliate network in order to offer the available digital downloads to their respective customers directly on their website.

We all want to use this opportunity to wish you a very merry christmas and a happy new year 2016.

* reduced quality suitable for home printing equipment

Anyone know whether the OS 4.1 license actually allows use in emulation?

I can't answer that but, who's going to stop you?

Do the updates check whether you're using a real Amiga or say, WinUAE?

No it doesn't. Hardly think they would want to kill sales.

Exactly.
If it wasn't for PPC support in WinUAE, I would never have bought it.
I think they (and me) owe Toni a big thank you for that.

As of this writing, AmigaOS 4.1 FE can use Zorro III RAM only for swap purposes, but it has been announced that work has been made to use this RAM as main memory
