Its looking very nice now. Hopefully it will be a little more stable than the last releases I tried

In the late 1999 I dropped AmiStart because I sold my Computer equipment, this was not against Amiga, it was more against Computers in general. In late 1991 I restarted the development of AS just to have some fun


I'm sure that has to be a typo though...as he resumed development 8 years before he quit in the first place

Looks nice. Works well, except that no programs added to it starts when clicking on them. Which would have been a nice feature to have, ehm. Could be because I'm using winUAE with 3.9 though ..

Well, maybe you were just expecting a little too much then.

Seriously though, IMO it would be great to have various good alternative OS components available for AmigaOS4.x. Such flexibility is IMO a great selling point and different people have of course their different preferences, although I believe the new AmiDock will rock.

BTW, typo corrected.
