Great stuff. Winuae is perfect for watching scene demos and runs circles around any 68060 Amiga.
When I compare a full-blown Amikit Winuae-installation with OS4, I can't find much reasons why I would want OS4 on PPC anymore.

This signature is in the middle of a much needed facelift!

How do you get WinUAE running on your PPC then?? E-UAE on Linux or Mac OS X I could understand, unless WinUAE runs on the NT4/3.5 PPC version or something?

Sorry, I know what you mean, just finding it hard to defend the OS4 running only on Custom PPC boards!

Talking about Amikit, it's wonderful collection of software, it's a bit like living in Paradise, but it's somelse's idea of Paradise, but it's not mine, so isn't not quite the same thing...

Even though WinUAE is a great tool to use, especially as my current A4000 has some issues, being able to run OS4 would be terribly nice.

At the end of the day, you can patch 3.x as much as you like to make it emulate the look and feel of OS4, but it will never be OS4. Until the hardware and OS are released to the general public in saleable quantities, the rest of us will just have to make do with this ever improving emulation (or our classic machines).

On what kind of hardware can it do that ? How much gigahertz and how many cores to run circles around 68060 when watching demos ? I have 1500MHz (1800+) Athlon and running demos on WinUAE is sometimes worse than watching a slide show.

Rock lobster bit me. My Workbench has always preferences. X1000 + AmigaOS4.1 FE

When I first used WinUAE 0.7.x/0.8.x on an AMD 800Mhz machine with Voodoo 5 and 512MB ram, ECS games and demos would generally run fine. AGA on the same system was unusable.

I have had WinUAE running more than adequately on an AMD 2600XP (currently underclocked to 2GHz as it was unstable) with 512MB DDR and a GF4 Ti4600.

Provided the JIT is enabled and your settings are ok, there is no reason AGA or ECS games/demos should not work as intended. In fact, I have only managed to get some things to run under UAE as they fail to start on my A4000 (CSPPC 604e/060 + CV + Prelude + 96MB ram)

In my case, 1 core at 2.2GHz most definitely runs circles around any 060 Amiga, probably by a factor of 10 (but I don't have any stats to hand, so don't hold me on that exact figure!).

Probably WinUAE was slow for you, because either (a) you had too little memory (need at least 1GB when using WinXP I think), or (b) your Windows system was infested with spyware & viruses...

No way you can get WinUAE be a stand-alone OS for x86 users? As in set a partition, install WinUAE with your favorite WInUAE config etc and become an AmigaOS running on your PC instead of running behind Windows? (THAT ITSELF WILL INCREASE PERFORMANCES BY THOUSANDS).
