Some good answers there. I'm particularly interested by this:

Quote:
booting a standard 68k OS3.9 on ExecSG through the 68K emulation service


A while ago, we were told that integration 68k emulation was the main thing left to do. If it can run OS3.9, then it sound like they've done it

The answer to question 3) is also very promising.
It shows that behind everything is a clean concept.

I thought Bill McEwen was good but Fleecy is even better. And he seems to get better with every QA.

What do i mean? Him managing to say nothing with so many words.

Only interesting bit seems to be the emulation of OS4. It seems that they may have done it

Other than that, nothing interesting. AmigaInc have mainly contributed to OS4 with the Generation 2 Amiga? Where is Generation 1 then?

The T-shirts? Well, it's getting a bit ridiculous really. "Resolution of this situation is pretty close to the top of our agenda"?

I have the impression that Fleecy lives in another world, one of dreams, theories, ...

@Z5

As I understand it G1 is 68k-based and G2 is PPC-based (possebly agnostic).

([Edited]: quote:"And Eric_z, i don't think it is. But then, it doesn't matter. It is just talk."

How nice that you added this after Messias posting, without mentioning it (the ed. parts) in your post. And btw if it does not matter then why on earth do you ask about it?)

i just found the exact description for Fleecy and QA:

he talks like someone in politics does.

And Eric_z, i don't think it is. But then, it doesn't matter. It is just talk.

What do you want him to say, exactly? You got two of your
questions asked and he answered them to the extent that he
could. What did you expect to get, except from 'talk'?

Gen. 1 would be the current stuff in Amiga OS(the Api´s from AOS moved to AOS4), Gen. 2 would be something new.

You do understand that while Fleecy tries to be as forthcoming as possible some of the questions will get replies that might not answer the question entierly, this would be down to buisness, legal, NDA issues and so on.

Also if you dont like the answers dont ask the questions :)

I thought that the answers were quite well said and makes me think better of the OS then ever b4. I found it informative, am i the only one???? I think not.

I find this better and more exciting then not hearing anything, you good for nothing, ungrateful gob ####es!

I would like to thank fleecy personally for caring enough about wanting to share with the community and that these stupid morons like z5 who are ungrateful and who want to just spoil even the littlest thing that the community has, should go and read something else.

i think i might just send fleecy a email thanking him right now.

Does that mean that somebody should only ask questions if they will like the answers. Strange...

No. It means you shouldn't ask any questions if you are not
ready to accept the answers to them.

@ choochy

Please don't resort to name calling, this is something we don't like to see at AmigaWorld, nomatter how well I can understand your feelings. Constructive criticism and in depth discussion is most welcome though.

@ z5

The same goes for you, stay cool. And BTW for someone who claims that he doesn't care anymore, you seem pretty much in denial.

I bought my first A1000 in 1986 and i'm still around. Ofcourse i care about the Amiga, the best computer ever made. And i don't think AmigaInc is doing a good job, on the contrary. That's my opinion, funded by three years of reality.

OK, so it would be better to say that you do care, however you are unhappy with the current situation?

I dont think it needs to be integrated as such, but it does need to be available, and more importantly, it needs to be easy to install, configure and administrate!

I've not used it yet, but supposedly the implementation of Samba in MacOS X is outstanding. Outside of that, though, Samba is not exactly a cakewalk for newbies.

In MacOS X, you are right. They have made it a "no brainer". You just browse for server and type in an url something like SMB://servername/sharename

I remember there being a username and password too at that point, but dont remember the specifics, although I believe you get a separate requester for that. I've only used that once or twice under MacOS X. But it works really nice. And the best thing was, I didn't have to configure anything.
