Wait till AmigaOS4 is out. Then decide from there.

@Effy

I have Amithlon here too! :-)  How about another "wait for", the Amiga ColdFire project.  The TRUE successor to the 68k family is being worked on as an accelerator for classic Amiga's.  How cool is that?  Check out the ColdFire's webpage :-)


Oh yeah, and for the geeks who can afford it, I suggest to purchase all of the above!!  Oh yeah!  OS4, MorphOS, OS3.x on ColdFire, and Amithlon!!  Yeah!
Regards,
Targhan

what do u want amigauser...i saw u changed your mind from classic to pegasos in some emu questions/answers... heh...

i want os4 , not morphos ..many reasons to that.

but sure emulators is bonuses for the people,but for me the os count the most.

btw....morphos is a way to go, but remeber os4 will not work on it , os 4 is for amigaone or classic PPC's ...


its your choice , either wait abit or....jump on it now...., i have been on here since 1985, i dont want to throw it all away... :)
Whats up with all the hate!

I use AmigaOne everyday from 2 month ago and its a very fine product, I have Debian Linux and run UAE on it, just for old good and very playable games!
Amiga Classics are so fun!
but I wait for AmigaOS 4.0
Im very happy and I just Love  my new AmigaOne G4 XE with 512 Mb ram and ATI Radeon 7000.
when OS 4.0 is here, you know its going to be a big welcome and rebirth of Amiga party! with much alcoholic! jiiihaaa

The Linux in/under Amithlon is colpletly invisible (until you mess around with some
start-up-commands, and get all those text messeages before you get into AOS ;) ).

You won't notice it except for the rarther lond cold-boot (warm boot is extremly fast).


UAE on PPC is quite slow (*) and only really usable for old games.

(*) 68030@25mhz + very slow/old Z2-gfx-card is what it comes closest to atm.
(on CPUs <1ghz)
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else
