Great - just a shame the vast majority of people here dont have the hardware to run it...


It's like dangling the mother of all carrots! PPC - check, Amiga Classic - check, can I run OS4? No because I've got an iBook and CD32 SX32! Wouldn't fit the bill in this universe would it, oh no I had to buy a third party expansion board specifically from Phase5 circa 1997 in order to run an operating system circa 2006 released pushing 2008!!!! My mistake! You just couldn't write this stuff!!!!!

Awsome job guys!!

I'll keep checking http://www.winuae.net/ to see if it gets PPC support.

I mean come on, I have an entire second 2ghz 64 bit core just sitting there when I run WinUAE that is doing nothing, I'm sure it could be made to emulate an old pre G3 PPC cpu running ~200mhz

Maybe I'll buy a copy of AOS4 and just hold out hope!!

I'm so jealous!

Way to go! Glad to see we will be getting more OS 4 users. Us Amigaone users were getting lonely.

P.S. Once again Hyperion delivers and Amiga Inc. doesn't.

Has AmigaOS once again changed its official logotype? Whatever font that is, it isn't Bodoni. Unfortunatly and from an estethic point of view, it is a step backwards.

Congratulations.

After SAM440, another REAL product delivered in time.

A nice lesson to some vapourware manufacturers we still have around this community.

Congratulations Hyperion and ACube for a job well done. Tempted to buy a copy and its been over 10 years since I ran an Amiga. Wish I could get a New PPC accelerator for the A3000 I've hung on to all these years...

Great to see Progress.

Now a PS3 rev. would be the best thing that could happen, IMHO.

Great news! The promises are here!

I´m thinking about to order one, just to support that great work. (sadly, i didn´t own a PPC Amiga!)

I´m also hoping now of SAM440 or WinUAE-Support

Great news, even if I don't have a PPC card...

Btw, can anyone tell me how well OS4 runs on AGA? (Screenshot?)

Or generally any screenshots of OS4 on classic and comments on performance etc...!

[Not that i'll ever get my hands on a PPC card... :P]
