Nice! Now ... when will we see MorphOS/AROS ports of your recent purchases? :D


They already said in the PPaint thread... if those communities get some bounty money together they may consider a port to AROS or MorphOS.  

Without, it's 68k and OS4 they're developing for.

Been wanting to purchase a copy for a long time... never got around to it, but now I'm re-ignited.

If so, they should not tempt us with "possible MorphOS and AROS versions". If they want a bounty or a pre-order system (I prefer the latter. Then we don't have to pay double for the products) then they should just make it happen and watch the money rolling in.

Add a "preorder for MorphOS" and "preorder for AROS (x86 and x64)" on your homepage, with a counter telling how many orders left that is needed and withdraw the money once it reaches zero.

Waiting for the community to figure out how to make money for you is kinda lazy :p

I agree.

OS3.1 compatible and clean 68k binaries work everywhere, no big deal with MorphOS and AROS versions. I'm sure they are even prepared to fix minor issues to make sure it works flawlessly on MorphOS and AROS.

That would make me almost as happy. But not quite. I would still prefer that we all play nice with each other instead.

That's another point, and come to think of it, I believe that all that prevents it from working under MorphOS is AHI support.

As for AROS, well perhaps a bounty could be raise to lease the source or what ever, and pay someone to write a port with the bounty, though again... us so called Next Gen Amiga users lack many media based features that we now take for granted on the classic Amiga, like MIDI support.

Software and Hardware together.  Sounds like a plan.

Exactly, it's just words they put on press releases. They don't mean anything by it , they are for sure not interested in supporting competition.

There's already lot's of applications that could be cross compiled already but it doesn't happen there's always an excuse for why they don't happen. Even if it perfectly could have been earning them income like good old shareware for example.

I have long ago realized AROS won't get a lot of good productivity software but that doesn't stop me supporting AROS The money I put in bounties for AROS is money I want to see develop the OS, I want to see how far it can go with the help of out bounty money.

Software is a whole other issue. In the meanwhile i learn to use Linux software that not only does the job better but have help online and a big community to get help from if/when needed and not to forget, tutorials. So keep your old legacy software I won't be using it and I know you don't want my money.

Old Amiga software is nostalgia, I can get that from UAE any day. Cutting edge productivity software is on my other partition on my computer it's just a matter of choosing Aros/Linux/windows from grub when I turn on my computer.
AmigaOS or MorphOS on x86 would sell orders of magnitude more than the current, hardware-intensive solutions. And they\\\'d go faster. --D.Haynie

It shouldn't come as much of a surprise really, A-Eonkit make OS4 hardware so that is the focus of their software development too.  Other "Amiga-like" OSes are not really in their business model.

That was a nice way to put it, I have a different story but I don't feel like I want to be banned today.
