I have one question, which is important and worrying...

Helgis: Seeing the worrying news about Apple seriously considering ditching PPC in favour of x86, weither or not this being the case, the question remains where would this leave the Amiga? If this is the end for PPC, would Hyperion consider to talk to Eyetech of going for instance AMD x86-64 in the AmigaOne, and let Hyperion try to rewrite AmigaOS to use the AMD x86-64. Just a thought, but i hope PPC won't die..

can you give a rough overview about what is planned for the coming os4 releases?
the os4.x feature list on amiga.com is no longer available - isn't it? so as os4.0 is coming nearer what will finally be in?
what do you plan for os4.x? no sinlge details wanted - just an overview of what definitely will be in?

@Seer

So after reading the link you provide me of what HyperionMP said, you mean that we could se a PPC/Cell-hybrid mixture for future AmigaOnes and AmigaOS-support? Is that what you're saying? Something like that? That could be better than i thought

"What is the mystery device?"

;o)

Nah, jokes aside:

"After the release of 4.0, about when, if ever, can we expect AmigaOS to include a more fully functional resource tracking and memory protection system allowing us to kill tasks without risking a totally unstable system?"

"Do you plan, at some point, to include a proper GUI based tool for task/process management? Such as listing all running processes, sending signals, changing priorities, killing individual tasks etc."

"In the capacity you can speak about it, what are Hyperion doing to push AmigaOS onto other markets than the 'amiga enthusiast' market?"

"Will you implement lightweight threads into the AmigaOS model at some point? Not talking about the available pthreads implementation here but rather actually embedding it into the AmigaOS model."

"What are your views of remote management of AmigaOS, such as using SSH/Telnet protocols to connect to an AmigaOS instance."

"What are your views of multi user handling in AmigaOS. The kind that lets several people be logged in at once, protected from each other. Is this a part of the plan or will AmigaOS stay a single user OS?"

"What other industry areas are Hyperion currently involved in that does not relate to the Amiga? In other words, what makes Hyperion stay in business, what does Hyperion actually do?"

"What happens to AmigaOS after the release of 4.0 as Amiga Inc plans to take the development back at some point. What are the requirements for this to happen and what do you plan to do between the release of 4.0 and then?"

"Can you outline, briefly, where you want AmigaOS to go on a technical level during the time that development stays at Hyperion? The technologies you would like to embed into the AmigaOS model, what services you want to add (like nova), changes in user experience and such."

"What would you define as the strengths of AmigaOS in markets outside the 'Amiga Enthusiast' one?"

/Björn

Ah, how about :

What OS4-only games are Hyperion planning or working on? (and what happened to the port of Worms Armageddon?)

Will there be any support for those who wish to develop applications in languages other than C/C++?
