Fleecy is giving specifications on what to expect in future AmigaOS versions. A brand new, written from scratch TCP/IP stack, Virtual Memory will come in OS4, the Amiga Component Model will give resource tracking, OS5 will bring SMP, an ACM and streaming system will bring a new datatypes system, the Audio system will be the best of any system out there. [They] have 5 of the best audio people in the world working on it. Closely-integrated 2D and 3D API are already underway, and with [their] close alliance with Matrox, there will be not only standard high level APIs but GLIDE like low level APIs to really take advantage of Matrox cards. A a new Workbench, an improved intuition.library will come in AmigaOS 4.5, hardware-independancy and probably a new printer system in 4.2 and a new filesystem in 4.0.

OK Fleecy. This gives me heart to go and invest in the AmigaOne. Im a bit upset that the DE has not been more embedded into the OS.

The DE will be integrated into OS4.2, much better than into any other OS.

Err, OK Fleecy.

A "written from scratch" TCP/IP stack? Is that not a waste of time? Surely
you would base it on BSD code?
The only TCP stack that isn't based on BSD code (that I know of) is Linux, and
that had many, many teething problems in the beginning and it's still not
hundrend percent correct in my view.
I would politely suggest that you rethink this policy and follow the big people
like MS, Sun, Apple, Cisco, Nordic Global and use BSD.

In reply to Comment 5 (Stephen Illingworth):
They could e.g. ask Holger Kruse if he would sell the Source to MiamiDx, as he seems
to be busy at Rebol and does not find the time to develop it any further.
Would be a good basis to start from, wouldn't it?

A new Intuition library? Does this change the look and feel of old plain workbench? If so, I really like to see some PPC Dopus things in there, like
improved file-listers. Like any 'modern' OS, you'll have to work within the first public screen, instead firing up Diskmaster to do your stuff. Nothing against Diskmaster though :-)
