Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : AmigaOS 4.x hardware vs emulation survey
   posted by Hans on 1-May-2023 7:07:48 (806 reads)
A discussion on amigans.net got me interested in how many emulation users we have vs those using real hardware.

Please help me out by filling in the survey on the following link:
https://keasigmadelta.com/store/surveys/amigaos-4-x-hardware-emulation/

As usual, results will be shared once everyone has made their submissions...

Please share far and wide, so that we get the most accurate picture possible.

To be quite honest, I already have an OS4 system, so it never occured to me to attemt to emulate OS4 on other hardware.

@redfox
Based on the results so far, you're not alone. Those using both hardware and emulation tend to either want/need AmigaOS 4 on a laptop when they're away from home, or they're using it as part of their software development & testing setup.

@Hans

Good point. Emulating AmigaOS 4 on a laptop would be very useful.

Thanks,

@all

Could someone please cross-post this to non-English forums? So far only amiga-news.de and amigaportal.cz seem to have picked it up.

The more responses, the more accurate a picture we get.

Hans

OS4 emulation is not great as it has no 3D support so you cant play any of the latest OS4 games.

Yes, there's plenty of room for improvement. Is there enough interest in such improvements, though?

@all
I plan to close the survey end of this weekend, and analyse the results.

Thanks to all who have filled in the survey already. If you haven't contributed yet, then here is your last chance. Click the following link:
