This is for Windows only, right?

No chance this program works with the Vampire Standalone, where only OS3.X system's behind the AmiKit?

Well the web links will work but none of the rabbit hole features, which is a big part of the app.

@amigang

For a company, or person who specializes in website design, there sure are too many spelling and grammar mistakes on your own website that you should probably fix. Looking at your site, I would not feel comfortable asking you to design a website for me or my company. This is meant as productive criticism, not an attack, or to just be mean.

@amigadave

Spelling and grammar has never been my strong points, your not the first and wont be the last to point it, I realise I need to get better and be a bit more careful, but I will not allow it hold me back and not even try. Thanks to that website I had three successful clients and made a small amount of money on the side. Not likely ever to get rich but it something. But thanks for the feedback will try and do better.

Perhaps if he points out the specific grammar/spelling issues then you can correct them.

Your right! The Best place for a PI is a Classic Amiga using it as GPU Accelerator and Rabbit Hole.

@QuikSanz

Using it as a Pi gives you access to much faster I/O.
That means disk and gigabit networking.
That also means native HDMI and 4k screen modes.
That also means 24 bit sound.
That also means fast WiFi
That also means USB3 support

The sooner OS 3.x is ported over to ARM, the better. Not sure what Aros is doing with it.

I'd love to see an A500 type keyboard setup with full Pi incorporation though.

Spot on IMHO. I think there is at least one RaspberryPi in a keyboard case design out in the wild already, but can't remember what it was called, or how to find it again. Maybe you can find it with Google?

Rant warning: There is no telling how many new Amiga users we might get if AmigaOS3.x were ported to the RaspberryPi 4. We might be lucky and get a whole new generation of Amiga programmers, if AmigaOS3.x gets ported to the Raspberry Pi 4. Millions of potential new users! So why isn't there more support for doing such a port? Well, I think it is because of a few reasons. 1. Money! Porting AmigaOS3.x to the ARM architecture will probably take a small team of programmers months of full time work to do it right, which will be costly, but I can't guess (maybe no one can guess accurately) what the total cost would be to complete the port. 2. AmigaOS3 IP is currently being litigated, so until that is resolved, no person or company would risk spending thousands of programming dollars/euros/pounds to port AmigaOS3.x to the ARM architecture. 3. Talent (or lack thereof). Finding enough programmers well versed in the Amiga API and also having experience in porting an OS from one platform to another, or to the ARM architecture, will be extremely difficult IMO (maybe impossible, which will drag out the successful development time from months to years). 4. The Amiga community is too fractured at the moment, and isn't likely to come together any time in the future, which makes raising the money to pay for porting AmigaOS3.x to the ARM architecture more difficult. The most investment done in the last 15+ years has been focused only on AmigaOS4 on PPC hardware, and unfortunately that IP is owned by a company that does not have the talent or money to move any Amiga platform forward, and the developers of MorphOS have decided to port their work to the x64 architecture, but I don't want to get off on that AmigaNG tangent. I don't know how we can ever see AmigaOS3.x running natively on the RaspberryPi 4, but if a competent company or group of sufficiently talented programmers ever would get permission from the "Owner" of AmigaOS3.x to do a RaspberryPi port, I would join in a crowd funding for that project. It's such a "no brainer" idea, its hard to believe that it hasn't already happened, or at least been planned for, so I will continue to hope, and wait. End rant mode.

@amigadave

Its stupid because be like making AROS again, was there not already AROS version for ARM? What happened to it. It wont make any sense to port AmigaOS3.x to ARM.

What can make more sense is to port AmigaOS4.x to ARM, but I believe there are some limits in the contract. AmigaOS3.x is really dated so many things have to be updated, AmigaOS4.x is already far ahead in many areas. So updating AmigaOS3.x is like writing AmigaOS again from scratch.

Try Pi 400 (Red and white, self contained in keyboard).

There is/was, but... how much Amiga software does it actually run?

I like this idea, but I would rather see AmigaOS hosted (not emulated) on Linux than a native port. It would be less work, and the resulting system could use Linux device drivers and apps.

Possibly this?
