    @CygnusEd

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    XSane is just as useful as your MySQL for allowing real day to day work to be done under OS4.

    Slightly offtopic, but how seamless is the AmiCygnix integration nowdays?
    - can one run all apps in WB window?
    - at the same time?

    @KimmoK

    AmiCygnix base package is X11 Desktop API (This makes it not seamless)
    on top of X11 you have GTK, QT, and so on, this are widgets (buttons and other controls).

    As for network and file-system, this are handled by clib/newlib API, standard C api, so this part is tightly integrated whit AmigaOS, but Linux file paths are used.

    Recently QT was ported to Intuition AmigaOS Desktop API, so Cygnix is no long required for QT applications. Only problem is the outdated 3D api on AmigaOS, because it required for speed.
