I already said "The exception to that is Cwb because that was made by someone you could  describe as "sane"."

So really, you're preaching to the converted. and I've seen a thread where somebody ran amikit on an 060 and it was balls slow, i'm talking whoops-windows-xp-sp3-on-pentium-133mhz-64mb slow.

Can amiga in a box even be downloaded any more? last I tried it was gone.

OS3.9 is really nice - but in my experience and usage, I do not like running it on anything less than an 040. It felt pretty slow on my 40mhz 030 equipped A1200 when I had it and I recently installed 3.9 on my 25mhz A3000 - to which I quickly un-installed it and went back to 3.1.

Hmmmm - I mainly use OS 3.9 on my A4000PPC. On the 68060@50mHz the speed is quite acceptable, but this may be due to the fact that my harddrives are attached to the UW-SCSI host adapter.

Initially I had an HD attached to internal IDE and that way the system was not so responsive. So I switched to SCSI and disabled the IDE...

I also have an 40mhz 030 equipped A1200 with OS 3.9., but haven't used it for years. I can remember that it was of course slower than the A4k, but I would think dropping the IDE in favour of an SCSI host would most likely speed up the system equally.
All the best,

>aminet-install netsurf

I actually would love that idea!! wonder if it is possible to have sometime in the future. The only problem that I can see is that many of the install scripts would need to change. At least in order to be able to un-install what has been installed.
