What the heck has AROS (3.1) to do with AOS4 (4.0)? This logic is flawed.


Hum... why would the version number of AmigaOS be of any relevance to AROS?

Sorry, didn't mean that as sarcastic as it came out. What I meant was, what should they have targeted that would have made them more than the hundreds of thousands of sales they've made on x86?

Pegasos? Old PPC Macs? AmigaOnes? Would any of these worked out better?

They tried the proprietary hardware approach (BeBox), they just barely outsold AmigaOnes.

Isn't it WinUAE and AROS not good enough for you then ?


Atm AROS X86 doesn’t quite run AOS legacy applications transparently …

Probably, An X86 version of AOS4 also would not run legacy applications

Course it would, a X86 version of OS 4 would have the Gladioli emulation system allowing PPC apps to run, including Petunia which would, in turn, enable legacy 68k apps. I can see it all now...

If AmigaOS 4 is going embedded, it would make sense to have applications made for the embedded device and they might as well be native...

As of 2006 I really have no more need for emulating apps from the 80's. On the rare occasion I do, I'll run it under UAE in an OS3.9 environment that I plan on keeping indefinately anyway.

If AROS reaches the point where native apps for it are comparable to apps on OS4, that's when I jump.
