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.

|I kinda feel the same way as some others here have stated... My A3000 was sure to get one of the upcoming G3/G4/PCI solutions. But looking at the new announcements of an all new PPC native AmigaOS, it makes me want a whole new machine to run the new OS on... Then things will really shine, and it will be moving forward in the Amiga evolution, finally. I am more than happy to end my A3k at OS3.9 and move forward with a brand new hardware and new AmigaOS from here on out. Let's just get it to market!|
All I have heard from Amiga users for the last several years is "We need new PPC hardware", "We need a PPC Native AmigaOS", "I still want to be able to run my old software", and "the AmigaDE is not the AmigaOS".....Now we are getting all of these things...but the objection now is "but it won't run on my old hardware" or "if I can't make it run on my old hardware I don't want it"... Well....it's time for new hardware, people. As hard as that may be to deal with, it's the truth, and the only way that the Amiga name will ever be taken seriously again. It may not be REVOLUTIONARY, but it's a natural progression forward... Just my 2 cents worth.
