Just the opposite as a Windows PC that it become more and more useless as time goes on and you need to upgrade to a new one to be again useful

If this is not good news for AmigaOS then I don’t know what is…

Things are really improving on software side for AmigaOS

Congrat's , Everyone with OS4. This looks like great news.
Now i wonder how much of www.iamiga.info the Osb-browser will display?
A screenshot would be great (i hope)?

and nothing more happens on the browser, it seems not very usable
for web browsing

@Pvanni
Thanks for trying it out.
I have made a version just for OSB, http://www.iamiga.info/for-osb it's stripped of netdissaster and video.
i could remove the netdissaster from the main page too, but i really want to keep the video, because youtube gives me a lot of back-links when people cliks through to their page from iAMIGA.

REALLY nice but...
Operating speed was really low here (G3@666 Radeon9250) any hint?
Scroling especially was really poor

Unfortunately I don't have same results as you...

GTKEdit comes with an GrimReaper message and Abiword doesn't appears on Desktop...

What can I do?

Thanks.

PS:Anyway i'm very happy to c that something moves and also for X11... Nice GUI!
