OS4 is being developed on A4000s or A1200s with PPC accelerators. These machines have a chip RAM limitation as they have AGA. The chip RAM limit will not affect machines with graphcs cards, the AmigaOne etc. It is no more a limit than the memory on modern gfx cards anyway - in fact less so, as it can be used for things other than graphics.
> Who uses normal modems anymore???
Lots of people. I do, for one. There's no broadband available in my area even if I did want it (or, more accurately, even if I could afford it, which I can't)
3) 3rd Party Support!!! ( This is the tough one )
Yep, this is the major problem - but OS4 and the AmigaOne seems to be attracting a lot of interest from people outside the traditional Amiga community, so there is a possibility that we might get some non-Amiga companies porting their software over to OS4.
