How about a "Task Manager" like windows so when a task hangs up and freezes you can check tasks to see what is hanging up and end the task.

Would be wonderful, of course, but being able to kill crashed tasks cleanly (without bringing down the whole system) would require major architectural changes to the OS.

I'd like to see the CD32 joypad usurping the one button mouse once and for all as the standard control method system wide! Support in the OS should be built in for JoyMouse type mouse control with the joypad out of the box. This should have happened with the launch of the AGA machines with CD-Rom support as standard too! C= made the CD32 the exception rather than the machine leading the charge!

While we're at it, why not support separate 2No Mouse ports and 2No. Joystick ports to save on port wear and tear?

... why did C= not bundle the CDTV/CD32 animating CD player with a CD equipped A4000 or A1200 with CD1200? Crazy?!  :-\

I believe this was planned, but the bankruptcy got in the way.
