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 22 (Darrin):
I agree with you Darrin, I still hope that someway it would be possible to upgrade the old A3k as well...It would just be fun to be able to run something that new and exciting on there, but I am not going to rant and rage if the new PPC Native OS requires me to buy a whole new system. I was trying to make a point that if this is what it takes to move forward, then so be it...let's move on. In the mean time I hope someone can come up with a way to use the new PPC OS on the old hardware...But I won't loose any sleep over it if it don't happen. As Fleecy said, the line has to be drawn somewhere. Doesn't mean you cannot still use the old system along side the new one.
