@ x303

So, you would like Amiga companies to develop their own CPUs/SoCs/memory controllers?

Another question I'd like to have answered.  Does Hyperion have an answer to the Apple Developer Connection to assist in future software development?

Nope. One of the "fun" things about OS4 is you get zero official support. None, zip, nada. Figure it out on your own, or hope somebody on Amigaworld has an answer.

It seems that USB hub can cause delay for thing like joystics + it limits the performance, etc...


10 USB ports is pretty good in my book delays or not. My PC has 10 ports, I use them all:
1)KBrd
2)GFX Tablet
3)X7 G100 Gaming KBrd by A4
4)Vinyl cutter
5)UB Funkeys hub
6)Printer/Scanner
7)Cup Warmer :)
8)XBox 4 Player controller adapter
9)Mulicard reader
10)My spare port for plugging in my phone or my Gamecube or my various other crap.

Just as well I have a spare header on my MOBO or I'd run out!

Actually, many of the OS4 dev team and experienced developers are happy to help people with queries on amiga forums, including AW.net or utilitybase. Also hyperion provides help for developers, they just have to ask.

that's not true at all as both Hyperion and ACube have answered my questions effectively after a few quick emails....of course the community (here, aw, amigans, eab etc) are always helpful too:)

Correct me if I'm wrong, I find it odd that Jorkany would know what sort of support a developer targeting OS4 would get given that s/he's probably never actually developed anything for it.

@tripitaka: looks to me like a total overkill, lol, why do you need two keybaords at the same time?
speaking of amigas: in my a4k i have a deneb with 4er 3,5ich internal hub built in. dvd writer hangs on the internal port, but this is just a lazy compromise, i havnt seen it woth to buy another acard adapter just to connect it, since i have usb im practically not writing any cds on amiga anymore. on the external hub i have a mouse and ocassionaly a pendrive or another external drive, never used all four at the same time.
the question is also where from the drivers come for all these devices, well, i run poseidon, you? ;D

Hi,

Hmm, I'll bet one or two of those USB ports is on the J-Tag and or the Xorro slot.

I'm way too tight to pay for batteries and I prefer a keyboard my bios can see.

Way too tight for batteries.. me too my TV hasn't had new batteries for over 5 years.  I keep rubbing them, breathing on them or swap them with something else.  I don't believe in batteries this day and age.  A wireless mouse and keyboard is like taking a step back for me.

I hate wireless things, I thought ill give it a chance and bought a Logitech DiNovo set for 200$, well I hated it, I have no problems buying batteries tho I even have 3K+ mAh rechargable batteries but since I do not like the facts i get more delay, my cat/children can press the reconnect button etc. Also it feels like the batteries allways die when I need them the most.

So now that expensive keyboard is only used at the PS3.

I will never ever spend more money on things that are wireless, im not disturbed by cords.

Not so odd actually. Anyone can observe what happens when an OS4 user needs help, the forums are the beginning and end of OS4 support. Take this thread for example, there have been many like it over the years:
http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=31385&forum=15

Hyperion has nothing even remotely close to resembling the level of support found for other OSes, a few examples are below. This relates more to the question I originally responded to:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx
http://developer.apple.com/
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Developer/Docs
http://www.ubuntu.com/support
...etc. etc. you get the idea!

Someone a few posts up mentioned that developers can ask Hyperion for help. While it's true that I don't use OS4, I have heard from people who have used it and I also know that contacting Hyperion is no guarantee of any support, or even a response. You're better off on the forums. Even most flavors of Linux go beyond this nowdays.
