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 42 (Ian Otter):
Amiga One won't be held back by the old motherboard, it will
run at full speed. The old Amiga motherboard will just appear
as another PCI card to the Amiga One. The old MB is only to
provide the old chipset for best compatability with old software.
The new software won't use the old motherboard at all. To the
old MB running the old software, the Amiga One will simply
appear as some sort of super-duper rocket-propelled accelerator
card which provides for all of its needs at light speed.
The Amiga one doesn't HAVE to even have an old MB attached to
it if you don't have one or want to. But if you do, some old
software will run that might not otherwise, or that might run
slower otherwise. It's only for the conveniance of those who
need or want to run a bunch of old software for a while yet.
Like me... I'm not ready to give up several of my old Amiga
art softwares yet as I havn't found viable replacements for
some of their features and ease of use, and I still havn't seen
a directory utility to match the simplicity of use of a couple
of old Amiga ones. And, believe it or not, I still prefer
Ibrows to either nutscape or ms interdebt deplorer. I HATE
the inflexibility and overbearing attitude of both of those,
as well as their bloated sloweness. I CAN'T WAIT to see lean,
clean and mean Amiga software running on super powered hardware!
