OS4 on the BlizzardPPC

Description: Well it has been a long time since I submitted a picture. I can't believe they cut the size to 100,000 bytes - my image looks terrible compressed that much!

Anyway, I thought I'd submit a screenshot of my workbench - running pretty much as it does "out of the box". On the BlizzardPPC... ;-)

Still no news of OS4 for classic PPC?

By the way, are  you allowed to say if the Mediator would be compatible?

@whabang

:lol: You sure aren't the first to make that link :-)

Pity I only noticed the dodgy date after I uploaded - one can't exactly pass it off as "running the clock a bit ahead", eh?

thats very comforting

it doesnt sound half as bad as the transition was from OS 9 to X that many a mac user were troubled with, and still are sadly

@Jose

Native modes work fine - after all you have a real native chipset at your disposal. I've tested deluxe paint in ham8 mode and it was fine :-D

I know a Gfx card is a must, but was just curious, does it support all the AGA modes like HAM8?

I basically wanted to post this to give a bit of hope to many a despondant BlizzPPC owner growing weary of waiting. OS4 for the blizzard is real, it does work and IMHO it will be worth the wait.

@Vincent

There's lots of nice things that have been done to improve the usage and functionality. Best of all they are in the smaller details, it's still completely amigaos as you come to know it. There's no learning curve, if you know 3.9 you will be immediately comfortable.

That's not to say there aren't major improvements - they're everywhere. But what I mean is, they don't get in the way :-)

@itix

Thanks, but the kudos certianly belongs to another. I'm only testing it and working on some stuff on the edges.

One thing I didn't notice before, that I love about OS4...

That prefs window disappearing off the screen :-D

Gorgeous thing that, and needed long ago.

Wow, congrats! :-D

I doubt you ever boot into slow 68k OS again :-)

@Warface

I specifically asked for permission before I submitted the image.

@Vincent

If you look at any of my other wb shots you can see exactly what happens if you boot from KarlOS: :-D

There's a very long story behind it, but I had the nickname "Karlos Kebab Van Mendoza" for some time and it ended up that the first 4 partitions became named after it :-)

Since changing HD, I actually cloned my KarlOS/Kebab partitions (both bootable) and the rest got split into OS4, Applications, Developer, Data and Workspace.

OS4 does indeed look good, but I'm more interested in seeing what happens if we boot using KarlOS ;-)

So the Blizzard version is not under NDA anymore?

The 100K filesize limit is totally nuts, I agree. Makes the best screenshots look awful fake.
