AmigaOS4 emulation???

How long do you think it'll take after OS4 is released for it to be emulated on another platform?

Legally or otherwise

I'm gonna say 6 months til you see something on the groups front. Of course I kinda doubt that Amiga Inc. will ever license it out to a third party for emulation, of course I could be wrong

AmigaOs4 is ppc only. No present Amiga emulator emulates the ppc processor so right now, OS4 remains unemulated. I think it's not just about the processor itself, Toni Wilen may answer for sure.

Maybe it'd be better for os4 to be pirated, rather than remain as an unknown, unadvertised os. My ppc is waiting for it! I hope it'll worth it

nah if amoigaos went x86 it would sure get out to alot of people,
but these people wouldnt care if they bought the games/apps, because
they already got it on the WIndoze partition ...

Therefore I think its a nice move to make new amiga machines with the new OS ..

But I understand whay you mean, it is bad if no one heras/or sees
the new amiga/OS .... it would be a shame..

I misunderstood your post sorry. By saying "ppc only" I meant it wasn't available for 68k, and you meant it's unavailability for x86. In this case I agree.
