Someone update me
« on: September 26, 2003, 09:12:17 PM »
I was gone for a while, about 3 months I think, but anyways... someone update me on the world of Amiga... is OS4 even out yet?!? I've been waiting for the longest time! I want my AmigaONE and my OS4, and I told myself I would wait until AFTER the OS4 came out... I hope I get good news.

Nope, the competition, MorphOS, is up to version 1.4 but no OS4 yet.
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!

OS4 isn't released, but...

*OS4 runs on the A4000/CSPPC (you probably knew that)

*Most of the modules that need to be PPC are PPC.  Including massive re-writes like AmigaDOS (no more BCPL!)

*OS4 boots into workbench on the A1 - the drawback ATM is that graphics.library is running under emulation with some legacy chipset emulation - but it still works well enough to run programs stably

*OS4 on this CSPPC now seems in a very usable (ie perhaps getting close to releaseable???) state.

*Pagestream will be ported to OS4

*Photos of a prototype of the upcoming (next year) AmigaONE lite were released - this is a Mini-ITX board
