I would like to see the ability run multible os in a window simliar to vpc on windows but built into the os, with the ability to grap data(video, text, and sound) from the other oses.  Also i would like to see built in support for emulators for instance other cpu directory for storing basic cpu engines that can be emulated- 680x0 so programmer dont have recode for a mac or amiga emulator and ppc engine again  for mac or amiga 4os. AMD 64 support is good also.
for source code for a vpc type emulator look here

Don't see why everybody seems so keen on running AROS on big irons.

AROS should concentrate on what made the Amiga the Amiga, back in those days.

"Power without the price" was the motto, not brute force with the elegance of
a 40t-truck (and even the noise level ....). My personal experience is that I the times
where I would allways need more grunt has ended 2 years ago with buying the
AthlonXP1600, and that is running Linux  :-o

A(R)OS is neat and clean and should therefore do more than o.k. with one of the
VIA-mini-ITXs. The 1GHz does need a small fan, but that shouldn't be a to big prob,
and it will surely deliever more than enough speed for any SW that AROS will get in
the coming years. Write a native/accelareted GFX-driver for it, put in in a really small case....
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

Being cheaper and smaller is one big advantage..

But Running AROS on an Athln64 has an obvious advantage!


And that would be ? The fact that the CPU is now iddling at 95 instead of 80% ? :-P

:roflmao:

oh, I don't know that voxel demos can be quite cpu intensive... I'm sure the CPU is idling at 94% :-D

Hey, this is AROS, do both big iron and mini-ITX. =)

Well it was you, who asked for ideas about an "AROS-Ohne".
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.

Being AOS like AROS is, as long as it runs silent, the rest doesn't matter much to me (Mhz wise).

That, an ATI Radeon and a decent sound board would made a perfect setup, hardware wise...

Mozilla ported back to it, plus OpenOffice and some of the amiga players, and voila, a Multimedia terminal!

Sorry, I disagree.

The Amiga 1000 was a dreammachin first of all because most of the people dreamed of owning so much money to afford that one.

The Amiga 3000 was the same when introduced: extremely expensive.

The A4000 was expensive, too.

The cheaper Amiga 500 brought the Amiga a  game-boy like image. Similar the A 1200.

The A500+ and A600 were way overpriced or two years too late, you decide.

The CDTV was brilliant, but not understood, and DID NOT HAVE A HARDRIVE AND NO FLOPPY!

The CD32... sigh... simply too late.

On which of these qualities should AROS concentrate?

The only really balanced Amiga was the 2000, and that was expensive, too, but offered a lot for its price.

And no, I am NOT Doomy.

Anyway, I loved my 500 and now love my A1000/Phoenixboard.



Have fun,
McTrinsic

Poll seems to be working fine (Probably best to start a new thread about it)... I can't decide what to vote for :-(
