Fleecy writes: AmigaOS4 will only run on hardware that conforms to the zico specification - currently that is the Eyetech AmigaOne (which also offers full backwards compatibility with AA chipset access applications) and the bPlan AmigaOne, which will run AmigaOS4 apps and older apps which use retargetable coding. We look forwards to other Amiga hardware companies developing zico based solutions and are actively talking to them.

In reply to Comment 6 (Bertrand PRESLES):
> What do you want AmigaOS 4.x to run on existing PPC cards?
I don't (don't have/want one of those cards)
> It's time to go to G3/G4! We are enough late!
I'd LOVE TO, but I CAN'T. I have an A4000T. I'm screwed for having bought the
highest-end Amiga made. I'm screwed for having fallen for the "Buy OS3.5/3.9
and if enough people do then we will give you 4.0/PPC native", which would then
have given me a reason to buy whatever PPC card would fit my big-box machine.
Now, this sounds like I'm complaining a lot, and I don't intend itto be that
way, I really am very happy to hear about this 4.0 announcment, and have already
had an Eyetech AmigaOne 1200 package on order with software hut for a month or so
now, but I don't want my high-end 4000T to be left behind, I want both machines
up to date as they can be. Have money, will spend...
What about the G3/4 accelerator from those matay Prometheus guys? That would give
us 4000T users some hope, but will they get the license from Amiga Inc. to run
AmigaOS 4.x native?? It'd just be sad to see my US$(thousands and thousands)
machine set back to gather dust in favor of upgrading a $200 1200 I just bought
from a friend...
Now, I'm not trying to bash Amiga Inc. over this, just to express my disappointment.
I just hope they find a way to let the Matay, DCE, etc. G4 cards run 4.x. And/or
that eyetech decide to make me an AmigaOne 4000T...
