Quote:
Minimum config: AmigaOne, 64MB free RAM, CD-Drive, Mui3.8, TurboPrint, Cybergfx or Picasso96 compatible


Does this mean that TurboPrint is required even when you own an OS4 supported printer? I know TurboPrint is integrated into MorphOS, but why should people with OS4 supported printers get OS3.x TurboPrint?

Wow, 119E + shipping, that makes some 25% of an average netto monthly wage here.

Still strongly considering!

We need a new developed software and without support where would we be.

I sent my order in. I intended to get an office suite for my Amiga back in 1998, but it never worked out. Second attempt.

Probably also due to the royalties they need to pay.

Does make the cost for AmigaOS4.0 look extremely cheap though! I mean AmigaOS4.0 is the result of years of hard work done by dozens of developers and beta-testers. OS4 Papyrus will be a port of an existing application to a (not too) different platform (OS3, MorphOS port already exists...).

My words. And by the way, if we don't get together a minimum of 60 preorders, it would really be THE shame.

@Samwel

You should attach that poll to Michael's news item so it doesn't drop off the radar screen.

I'll order one too.

This is better because it's being done by Amiga types, rather than bloated OOo.

It will be way more optimized for AOS than the aforementioned SW.


I still look forward to getting SBase5 Pro, though!


And, I've already prepaid for Pagestraem for AOS4.0. (Last year.)

I can't do that! But maybe some moderator could do this?

Hmm...last time I preordered something, I got iFusion.

Still, I'll consider it. We do need an office suite for OS4. I'll have to see how this compares to OpenOffice...

@MikeB

Actually (as far as I know) it took quite lot of work to port Papyrus Office to OS3 and MOS. I followed porting process a little and it must have taken at least 12 months, if not 18 months... Although I couldnt find Papyrus satisfying enough for buying I know it is not simple five minute SDL recompile.
