Friend amigadave! Quite a long way to say abolutely nothing while expressing a very strong opinion... without expressing it! You, my dearest of friends, really have the chops to be a moderator. Hop on that tall white horse again!

@Trixie

I'm not deluding myself. I'm looking at what I think OctaMED needs. I don't think OctaMED needs to be fully modernised. All we really need is a version that works and plays without crashing.

The OctaMED story goes futher back than AEON. I recall over ten years ago there was to be a PPC port. But it just never eventuated.

Around the same time I released The Maestrix. I expected it to last one year or two at the most as a stop gap. Until a PPC MED was released with direct AHI support.

Well were still waiting. And despite being years old and in need of some updates. The Maestrix is still relevant.

Well, to OS4/MOS?/AROS OctaMED users.

Absolutely agree! At the moment I can get OctaMED working, but it requires The Maestrix, and I have to mount the CD, and there are still the occasional stability hiccup. I don't need a new Reaction GUI (although it would be nice), or any new features necessarily (other than working with AHI seamlessly). I just want it to run and work well without any kludges required. And I'd pay for it, too.

And that requires exactly the amount of work I have described above (minus the new GUI).

Thanks. There's a few versions. Aminet, CU, demo and I have the CD as well. I may have copied the whole CD to a drawer to install but I forget. Might need to check the docs. I don't need the CD to use it.

The most major problem I have is after a render I get a freeze on my X1000. Can reboot but the render is gone. I have setup a RAD in desperation but still lost it. Also it is known to crash on exit, something to which Helgis will attest.

I just checked and it is font sensitive. Windows gadgets slightly off as they are too small. But a few flags should fix that up. In any case there was some work put into giving GadTools a ReAction look. But I am fine with the clean look of GadTools.

Hello All,

Long time since last login...

When is the A1222 going to be released do we know yet?

Is that the only OS4 hardware currently available to buy.

Thanks!

It should have been about now but production is based in China so it's been pushed back. Hopefuly it'll be on sale by the end of the year.

The big daddy of OS4 hardware is available to buy but the price might make your eyes water.

Thanks. Blimey yes the X5000 is quite expensive. Then again some people don't blink at that much or more for a Macbook Pro etc.

Has the pricing on the A1222 been released? Can't seem to see it anywhere. All i've seen is "around $500", have any more specifics been given?

@DBAlex

The discounted price for the 100 pre-orders was 350 so my guess is that the final price for everybody else will be 400-450.

Thanks. Sounds reasonable.

Take it that is for board only?

The X5000 looks expensive but based on inflation its only slightly more than what I bought my A500 for.

Value of $1,799 from 2020 to 1988
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index, today's prices in 1988 are 54.17% lower than average prices since 2020. The U.S. dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 2.47% per year during this period, meaning the real value of a dollar decreased.

In other words, $1,799 in 2020 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $824.52 in 1988, a difference of $-974.48 over 32 years

Except in 32 years, the price of every other form of technology has dropped so precipitously that you can get a lot more today for a lot less money. There is absolutely no reason that a 35 year old OS needs to run on outdated, expensive hardware.

The problem is the software... and that problem is perpetuated by a select number of people who control the IP. The OS can't be maintained. Or enhanced. Or ported. Or redeveloped. It just slowly withers towards an inevitable death.

The arguments that those in charge are actually rather nice in person and it's unfair to cast judgement are beyond ridiculous.

If the mandate is to litigate the Amiga into obscurity just make if official so that we can give it a proper send-off.

Weird, I had the same thought -a couple of times- during the last days.

Amiga is already an obscure platform (since many, many years). If you don't like what's available (BTW: there is far more than only AmigaOS4 to choose from, even an open-source version called AROS) than just make your personal send-off and let the others have fun with whatever they want.

The situation is far from perfect, but do you really think that with other players AmigaOS will raise again and become a mainstream-OS?

Good old "Cheer or F off". I don't think there has been any other single thing that has contributed more to shrinking of Amiga community.

That wasnt my intention to say. But I am also tired of the same old arguments again and again. They change nothing. It's always like "Idont like the situation, I have no fun with it so other people shouldn't have fun with it, either."

There are still people, who are interested in AOS4 like DBAlex, who wanted to know a few things. Whats so wrong with it?

Thanks, sorry I didn't want to start any arguments, just interested in the latest goings on!

Hard to dip in and out of the Amiga scene, when you've been away for a while trying to catch up on all the latest info.

I think until A1222 is released might try OS4 in WinUAE. I got WarpOS working today so should not be to difficult if I follow the guide.
