Now, I've never used morphos, aros or for that matter Amiga os4... But Surely everyone has better things to do then squabble.

I'm a Trekkie so will now draw on a quote.

Klingon proverb: Only a fool fights in a burning house.

Lol. No wonder! No morphos User or Developer ever complains but os4 guardian chrish opens already a third thread defending morphos against evil aros copycats, with Applause of another Big os4 fan nutsaboutamiga. Since os4 Users Attacks at Amiga alternatives are getting pretty massive for the Last few days (exec.pl newsitems), i guess something very disturbing Must have Happened to inspire this. I guess it probably does Not Even have anything to do with aros or MOS.

Sincerely yours awaiting more of this commedy.

Actually using an AmigaOS 4.x skin under AROS or MorphOS is a good commercial don't you think?

Maybe this is more appropriate:

@thread

You can take your legality umbrella, shove it up yo a$$ and open it.

I for one would love a decent OS4 theme for my PB - I like it!

Sue me.

@Frags

You don't have enough money.

As I said earlier I'm new to this sh1tstorm but it looks all very lame to an uneducated outsider.

@AmigaBlitter

Thought of that quote, and it is better for sure. But I don't believe DS9 was good enough to count as Trek so discounted it

Now where's a more constructive forum to read....

Who would want an os4 theme anyway? MOS, alright, but os4?

Advice: Just slowly pronounce the word

I-L-L-E-G-A-L

and just feel how it tastes, the whole idea is hilarious, really.

Coming next:

- OS4 users shouldn't eat meat on Friday
- MOS users must wear white clothes only
- AROS users must marry their cousins and live in the wilderness

I probably shouldn't contribute to this thread at all, since I don't agree with the idea(s) that created it, but I just wanted to say, as a MorphOS user for the last 4 or 5 years and as a MorphOS promoter at the last 4 AmiWest Shows, I don't see any similarity between the OP's screen shot of AROS and any of the default installations of MorphOS2.x, or 3.x over the last 4 to 5 years.

Also, I would just throw this little tid bit into the fray:

Copying something is the best kind of flattery for the original.

Maybe... but it's not always recommended to actually do it... just think if someone thought that about Hitler...

Or worse... School Dinners of The 70's era... where the custard was so thick you could bounce a spoon off it...

Some things are best left as a "one off" and never imitated again...

@ChrisH

Ah Chris you are invaluable as a developer in our community but wow are you a fanboy! I thought the thread was going to be a joke but you are serious!

I know what you mean though I run both morphos 3 and os4 on my peg2 and sure dont want to use an os4 theme on morph and vice versa

and once again we have the plague of franko writing useless posts filled with emoticons oh joy how interesting how enlightening *NOT*
