AROS on it sounds like a possible business opportunity


AROS is not a commercial OS. At best its only a hobby OS and it needs some serious developments before people can use it as they're main OS. Even then it'll only be geeks that are using at its main OS.

AROS is great, i wish it all the luck, hopfuly i'll help one day, but its got a long way to go before it gets to any state where someone could consider selling it pre bundled.

How about finishing the remaining 15% or so of
Amiga OS3.1 that's still not done, instead of
worrying about what hardware AROS should run on?
Personally, I would like to see AROS run on my A4000T, mainly so I can fix the minor bug that
exists within IPrefs.

Let me jump in here and clarify something.  This poll has nothing directly to do with the AROS Devs so they are continuing to do their coding as they have been doing for many years now.  This is poll is my idea on trying to gage what people want in prebuilt machines.  So if you want to flame anyone, flame me but not the AROS Devs, they don't have anything to do with it.

The results so far are suprising to me in some ways, reinforcing my point of view in other ways.  So keep 'em coming!  :-D

Oh in that case I want it to run on my Microwave oven!

No go!

Here's the deal:

The floppy can't be disabled or enabled.

Floppy access is external USB only.

CMOS can't be accessed as usual at boot-up (at least I have not figured out how to do so).

There is a hardware settings app in the windows control panel to change boot priorities and there is no option that does not include floppy.

Most new laptops (and some desttops) do not come with floppy drives anymore. USB floppys are used if needed.

I feel that an endless loop condition is a BUG that should be fixed.

Laptops are fast becoming the computer of choise as their prices continue to drop. Most will not come with built-in floppy drives and hense wont work with the current state of AROS.


Hmmm, you are a bit stuck then... I must say it's odd thoguh, I've tried the Latest build on two Laptops now (neither with a Floppy drive) and had no problems what so ever.

One of those laptops is my own and you can see it here, running fine no floppy drive in sight!

AROS would be useful on a PDA.  Maybe you could get IBM to donate a few of their PowerPC based PDA prototypes to develop the ultimate Amiga PDA.

I bet they would.
