Ambient Featurelist! (MorphOS) : Comment 22 of 64ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 15 (Agima PhD.):
I know that you are only here to troll, and I can understand your
desperation, because it seems like MorphOS is the ONLY next-generation
Amiga OS that will have a future (thanks to the Pegasos). The
pre-development OS4 version is too tightly tied to the A1 hardware,
and that will make it dead born in its incubator, and at the same time
the Pegasos is moving towards real mass-production (these are
obviously only the first steps, but it's HAPPENING!):


No more production runs in the hundreds, we are moving towards
thousands or maybe even tens of thousands of units EACH RUN! It's
happening! The Pegasos has really been embraced with love by Freescale
(and also IBM) and the Pegasos has already working CPU cards utilizing
the very latest and most modern PPC CPU's from both those vendors, and
these will go into production before the end of the summer. Another
result of this partnership will be that future Pegasos versions will
use the latest G5 architecture, and any other future CPU from those

And on the MorphOS side?


So Agima, I would be a little more humble if I were you. The current
version of OS4 is no real option for an Amigan that is looking for a
NG system to migrate to. It may be good for people who wants to
develop for Hyperions OS4 (who?), but that's it! It is currently not
good enough for serious usage in a general way (and that is what users
wants). In fact, on the A1 not even Linux is usable in a serious way.
In fact, there is no way to use the $800 A1 motherboard in a serious
way. The hardware is too expensive, too buggy, too old (it's even
getting quite hard to get a functioning memory module for it, and
those are becoming really expensive), there is nothing new in the
works that replaces it (except the Micro A1 which is even less for
about the same money). The A1/OS4 package did not make it to the
starting line, it was too little, too late and too expensive to make
it. So I would be a LITTLE more humble if I were you!

The only way for OS4 to have a serious future (whenever it matures
enough to be at least usable to a general public) is to jump on the
Open Desktop Workstation bandwagon. You will get a free ride to an
established customer base (like any other OS for the platform)! Either
that, or make it run on Mac hardware (like MorphOS will).
