OK - back from a long hiatus; I can't resist posting in response to this news article :)

If I was to buy a version of OS4.0 from ACube, would I receive something that will work only on "Classic" PPC hardware (which I've sold) or will it work on classic AND new hardware?

I'd love to chip in to buy a copy now to show support, even though I don't have the necessary hardware (unless a Mac mini counts? Please?) although I'd like to think that what I'm buying will at least be usable in the future, when I get around to buying a new Amiga PPC system...

/end lurk

This version is for Classics only. It only contains a kernel that works on classic machines, and only contains drivers for classic machines.

Good news Hyperion :)

While classic sales wont "save the platform", it should noticeably liven up the OS4 scene online, as we've only got 1000 users or so anyway!

Excellent news!

Let's have a big hand for Hyperion!

Does that mean we can bin the sign?

Kind regards,

Francis.

"Classic" is such an interesting phrase. Great job regardless!
I just wish I hadn't sold my PPC card to pay my bills about 4 years ago - Doh!

Congratulations to the entire Amiga OS 4.0 development team!

The upgrade from Amiga OS 3.9 to Amiga OS 4.0 is a biggie.

P.S.
This one is for Waldorf and Statler...

I've got nothing to run it on, but I plan to buy one any way. I figure the support might lead to bigger/better things later.

@rogue
There's a slight error in the press release.

It states that there will be a compatibility list at A^3's page, but that is already up since a week back.

Just thought I'd let people know.

Oh and congrats!

This is the official compatibility list.
edit: Which I now see is already linked in the first post.
