For you, perhaps. As for me, I don't have nearly as much interest in legacy apps. And I  can run a fairly decent web browser, play back DVDs (and most HD video), and use more than 256 colors at once.


256 colors a plus in an RTG thread ?  Little odd dont you think. Amigas have been running more than 256 colors for 20 years via rtg.

Yes, MOS can offer a nice compromised system for the modern computing world. But this is maybe my point. Everyone else (even phone users) are running 1080p video, have fully functioning browsers (no discredit to Fab's MOS OWB, its the standout browser for "amiga" systems), play bluray video, have gaming more modern than quake3, etc, etc.
I just find the classics more interesting and leaving me with less wants. The classics do what they set out to do nicely. Any NG amiga option stands out as comproised because a person expects more from a current system.

Also, incase you missed it Im not anti NG amiga, and quite like MOS. Would I have spent hundreds of hours developing for those systems if they disliked them, or didnt get the point ? As much as I like them though, and as much as I did what I could to try to redeem the problems with them I find myself discontent with them still.

Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

RTG - for 14 - 15 years already. It has been a necessity to keep Amiga somewhat useful in Internet use.


Your view on what constitutes Internet seems quite narrow then.

Agree with you guys on MOS.

MOS on my Peg 2 has always felt like what the next Amiga should be.  Ambient's update to the workbench is, imho, a perfect transition to the 21st century.

I still enjoy my 3000 with my kids, but MOS is really polished and complete.  It would be nice to see the Natami be released for another perspective.  But for now, from my standpoint of running many amiga 68k apps and being fairly modern, MOS has the advantage and makes the most sense...

Yep A4000, CS2 68060, CV64 and Indivision, CGX v4.  Best of both worlds.  I sold a CV643D plus its semi-working scan doubler to buy the Indivision.  

Beacsue I had RTG since about 1998, I didn't buy a another computer until 2007.  When I ran Amiga productivity apps I relised just how that software flies on an RTG screen.  I also ran MS Office, and Photoshop 3 via Shapeshifter, played Mac Doom inside Shapeshifter, used Netscape, Internet Explorer, Acrobat for PDF's, scanned 24 bit images (into Photoshop as well).  RTG opened up so many options for me.

I have an A3K with a GVP Spectrum card, which is a fantastic combination.  The Spectrum is not fast compared to other cards, but with the passthrough for the A3K's 31kHz display output, I can seamlessly switch between programs running on RTG and ECS.  So I can use Workbench, AWeb, etc., in higher resolutions and also run hardware-banging games and demos.

I recall when RTG meant that certian graphics packages (ImageMaster r/t, ADpro, ImageF/X, and others) could ReTarget the image to the early 24bit display cards/framebuffers such as Firecracker24, OpalVision and others, allowing one to actually see all 24bits of color while manipulating the image thus lifting the optical barrier of working on a 24bit image in standard Amiga resolutions.

To answer to OP question:
Yes with the A3000.
No with the VT/Flyer system.
