Ahh... but over the water here, most don't (even the ones I knew when the Amiga was still popular never owned one), they were too much of being skinflints to part with 500 quid plus to ever buy one... :(

Though oddly enough they were happy to spend that money on a PC or MAC but most now regret it, cos it costs them an arm & leg to try and get back into the Amiga scene these days via eBay... :)

I suppose it is pointless if you don't own a classic Amiga equipped with a PPC card, or if you're generally not interested in running OS4 on a classic machine.  The same comment could be made by anyone about anything they're not interested in.

But, thankfully, there are still some classic Amiga users who will welcome this news.  I don't think anyone is under any illusions about classic Amigas being the way forwards for the future, but some of us (me included) just like to keep the old girls going, for no other reasons than because it's fun and because we can.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this development - OS4.1 for classic machines is a very welcome update.

AH

How much do you want for the CSPPC?

have not made up my mind yet, i need it for betatesting aros currently (it behaves differently than, say, csmk1, so..). but i will let you know if i decide to part. be warned though, it is a 150mhz version, the slowest one, and i would try to get as much as i can, the current circumstances considered..

Yes, Great News! I'm still not satisfied with my OS3.1 installation, and I've been working on it since 1994, but I suppose time moves on and I need to order. Sometimes 'two more weeks' actually gets here.

;) fun, but please understand Im a 'returning' Amiga user and have just done so since last year.. I have spent a LOT of money on my classic system, thats not without a reason Im sure you'll understand.

I live on this side of the pond and do not have a PPC amiga.

The fastest processors I have are 68040s.

so what advantages does 4.1 classic have over 3.x? I think i remember before that someone said 4.0 classic made the system slower? Not sure.
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

If you are going to keep your Amiga 1200 you dont have to worry about.

I mean, BPPC and even so much praised CSPPC is very very slow for modern software (Battle for Wesnoth, OWB, MPlayer and many more) and on the other hand 68k community is still so strong there will be new software next ten years.

Yeah true. But still, I would like to support Hyperion and OS4. Ofcourse, I am not really being forced. I just stated this coz I would expect some sort of update policy for registered OS4 users.

I don't think he specifically means a Pencil.  I think he's referring to damaged stationery in general.
