AROS Hosted For Anubis
« on: December 24, 2008, 12:55:51 PM »
Look what I saw on MooBunny, seems that Anubis will have a hosted version of AROS at some point in time.


Unless otherwise noted, I speak only for myself.

I dont want to sound like a nay-sayer, but from reading the "AboutAnubis", it seems to me that they dont know that much about Linux in the first place. They want to get rid of ALSA because it's complicated with all the sound systems? Really, that is quite insane.

Also they want the shell to be more like "Linux shells" (whatever that is) - which to me is just silly. The Amiga shell certainly has its limitations, but all in all is a good part of what makes amigaos enjoyable, they should rather focus on improving functionality within the context of Amiga shell instead.

The linux kernel is moving and changing, I dont quite see how the anubis developers will manage to follow up. I'm afraid Anubis will be like Amithlon, only with less software and hence less usability. Maybe they should just join DragonFly BSD instead, at least they would have a kernel developer who know AmigaOS and appreciate the features they're after.

Exactly, they don't really understand Linux, especially it's strengths and weaknesses.  The more they write, the more their ignorance of Linux shows.  


What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

Since you've chosen to provide not a single example of your highly dubious and specious claim that the Anubis folks don't know Linuxs' strengths and weaknesses. Specifically, your claim that "the more they write, the more their ignorance of Linux shows" provides zilch in terms of explaining why you believe this. Based on personal conversations with the core Anubis team, I couldn't disagree with you more, however I'm not going to let this simply digress into an all-out flamewar, so I'll ask you to support your arguments before tearing them apart with actual first-hand knowledge.
