OS 3.9: Boing Bag 2 available now!
20. March 2002: H&P is proud to announce the availability of Boing Bag 2
for AmigaOS 3.9. Boing Bag 3.9-2 contains many bug fixes, small
enhancement and new features in the areas multimedia (AMPlifier, PlayCD,
sound datatype), shell, Workbench (Find, AsyncWB, UnArc, XAD v10),
ReAction and harddisk support. The Boing Bag is delivered in three parts:
The main archive with all the files needed to update AmigaOS 3.9, the
translations into different languages and the contributions (CDDB library,
OpenURL, ClassAction). We want to thank all people that made it possible.
Please download at least the main archive and the translation(s) for the
language(s) you desire. The contributions are optional.
Note: This Update requires AmigaOS 3.9 with Boing Bag 1. AmigaOS XL users
can install the Boing Bag 2 directly.

You know, you almost sound elitest there, but I know you're not. :) Fact is some people might not be able to afford more then the Amithlon. I doubt people "don't care" about all that other stuff. I'm sure most people would rather drive a Ferrari then a Trabant, but economics can be a limiting factor. :)
Anyway, I think the 68K apps will act as a glue that will keep the 68K classics, Amithlons/WinUAE and OS4.0 groups together. Eventually as more people buy the PPC hardware more PPC apps will be made. Question is when will it hit that critical mass point where there will be a massive shift from 68K to PPC? Not right away of course, but at some point later perhaps a full year or two. That's how it was for the Mac when they went PPC. It wasn't an overnight change, but a slow one. So it will be an interesting time and like in all interesting times, you can expect more flame wars.
