Hmmmm
is there a reason why "AROS" is below "none" ??
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

The AROS choice is now deleted. That will show you tampering with the poll unfairly. It is very unfair for the other hobby OSes, for a poll that is so interesting to see genuine results. By tampering with the poll you are doing bad to your favorite OS, not good. What did you gain now? A deletion!

Ouch!

Just boycott OSNews.  I've never really found anything worth while on that site and free thinkers are not wanted there.

Darn.  Too bad CodeWarrior is $399, and my only programming experience C64 basic!   :-D  :-o

Interesting to see under the OpenBeOS link that they plan on having it run on Amiga 3000's.  :-o

Great... they've made AROS/Amiga supporters look like fools.They've made it sound as if the entire community was in on it. Rather than saying 'An irresponsible individual... etc...', they accuse point blank anyone returning to see the results of tampering with the damn thing  :-(

@ Dammy

I don't get it. You advocate the boycotting of a fine news site just because they objected to the hijacking of their poll :-?

I think you should be a bit more broadminded not them.

It is not fair to directly link to a specific option on a poll.

Free thinkers hah, it just makes us look juvenile and like attention seekers. :getmad:
