How nice. I finally have a working Windows system again and WinUAE would be a great addition.
Amiga 3000D UP and running! Hear that clicking. 8)
Amiga 3000D & 4000D in storage sadly.

Over Toni's dead body! :roflmao:

"That's not a real Amiga" I believe is his philosophy. Someone needs to modify PearPC or QEMU before that has a chance of happening...

Of course, one of the MorphOS developers got that running on a modded QEMU, dropped screenshots, and never released it, but that's another story.

Not a real amiga?
An expansion PPC board, plugged into the original A1200 slot, makes the amiga capable of running Amiga OS4, which is a software.
It's as Amiga as a 68060 powered A1200 running software made just for it. Which, btw, is emulated on WinUAE.

We're not talking about Sam's boards or any other exotic 100% different hardware.

I wouldnt hold my breath for ppc emulation in Winuae. Toni has expressed numerous times that its of no interest to him.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Me too, but my point is, the real problem behind the curtains is:
* They're probably afraid of the AmigaOS (Trevor & Cia) guys, which support ideas just like the first one listed here: What it is and what its not an Amiga.
- Mac Mini??? Noooooooo, that's not an Amiga, so, our SW can't run on that...
- We'll not be supporting Apple's old computers. We'll create something entirely new (which is great, and we all know why it costs a lot of money, but)...
and etc...
