Didn't bother to vote after looking at the site. It's all theoretical unless OS4 gets ported to it. If I want to dabble in Linux or even more exotic OS's, I can do so on much cheaper hardware.

I'd like that Amiga DNA to continue too but we'll need to make some breaking changes to fully support modern features. This is healthy IMHO. Windows and macOS have done this continuously over the years. Message ports need to stop sharing memory which means changes to Intuition. IO caching. Full memory protection. Multi-core.

Note I said UNIX not Linux because I'm wondering about something like Dragonfly BSD as a modern kernel with an Amiga userland API. Or maybe a micro-kernel?


You mean something like this: ARIX? Yes, it runs on top of linux just for the reason of being able to run it on nearly anything I want, be it ppc64, aarch64, arm, x86 or x64 based...

Yeah, I think that's right. There is no economically rational reason to buy this over amd64 for running Linux, but PPC is rare nowadays (on the desktop) and therefore interesting.

Looking at the benchmarks and the price, Power 9 vs Amd threadripper looks promising !

Nice promotional price (even without CPU)!
