I see Dr. Schulz is doing his usual excellent work with his AROS port.

Now that'd be nice... Ubuntu running on SAM... Might be a nice option since I am running Ubuntu anyway. And if some happy happy day AmigaOS 4 was published for SAM...

Sam440 vs any Intel/AMD PC

Sam440 vs PC they run the same operating systems, and AROS does not emulate 680x0 CPU can't run 680x0 software transparently emulated, even if PowerPC is perfect for this as shown in MorphOS and AmigaOS4.

Positive point:
* SAM440 has a FPGA, cool for hackers I think.
* There is tiny chance its going to run AmigaOS 4.0 in the future.

Negative points:
* Sam440 is slower then most vanilla PC's

Good news for, well, I'm not sure who.

I applaud ACube for actually delivering something, unlike ACK, Troika, etc, but without OS4 on it, I simply see little reason to buy one - AROS runs on commodity hardware far faster and cheaper, so while it's a nice bone for those that already have a SAM440, it's not a compelling reason to go and buy one.

Likewise for Linux - I wouldn't call Crux and Ubuntu 'different operating systems,' but ok, fine - again, there are faster, cheaper alternatives for a lightweight Linux box.

Net effect - I guess only people willing to blindly support ACube in the hopes that one day they see OS4 on it will buy one, which really is unfortunate

Short of OS4 'officially' releasing for it, if the FPGA were able to emulate a classic, maybe someone could sort a way to get OS4 classic running on it (would need drivers, so similar to 'Moana' in that respect). If that 'someone' were not ACube, and they did it correctly, offering only the required bits, and none of ACube's nor Hyperion's IP (OS4 bits), I don't see any way ACube could be suded, any more than AInc has any chance of suing Apple because at least some small number of their machines ran OS4...ahh well, nice dream, anyways...even then, I'd prefer to see Moana completed and released, unless the FPGA were to give us something actually making SAM special.
