Correct, the platform / cpu info is buried deep into the client magic, and you can't affect that.

Grouping OS4 with old AmigaOS is slightly questionable, for example MacOS classic and MacOSX have unique IDs. At least without different ID such comparision against MorphOS are unfair.

MacOS Classic & OSX are very different beasts, so that comparisation doesn't really work i'm affraid (Classic is the same os as MacOS 7 more or less, while X is BSD based), and about the fairness, i honestly don't see your point there, it's not like these things are actually important, or showing how good/bad a particular OS is

In reply to Comment 12 (Amon_Re):
Sorry, but this would mean that MorphOS and OS4 are actually one and
the same platform. MorphOS really has more in common with
powerup.library, than OS4 has in common with either PowerUP or WarpUP.
To the best of my knowledge, OS4 does not run any PowerPC/AmigaOS
programs, while MorphOS runs both PowerUP and WarpUP programs. And
Hyperion have told that PowerUP support will be easier to do for OS4,
than WarpUP support.

Alternatively, it would mean that most of the keys crunched by the
"AmigaOS" platform are in fact not crunched by the AmigaOS platform at
all (that is, if you define "AmigaOS" as "the name", rather than
PowerUP or MorphOS). Which would be a little weird.

Well, of course it doesn't matter much in any OS4 vs MOS "battle", as
the MOS team is already more than 3 times further ahead. Even if OS4
altivec would be released before MOS altivec (MOS altivec has existed
longer of course, we'll just have to wait and see which is released
first) I strongly doubt OS4 could catch up. But I would have thought
that OS4 people at least wanted their own platform, which doesn't
start out with a base where most work is done by the "opponent".

If you don't like that the stats have risen from 800 to 2400 something in about someweeks that's ok too.

But seriously, Johan if you absolutely hate os4, where's mos1.5?

Hello

> It's high time that the reality strikes!
> MoprhOS is not AmigaOS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are right as far as the name is concerned.

MorphOS is of course much more Amiga than anything Hyperion have created so far.

Just an example: The very very real true Amiga PPC Kernel used for PPC cards back then was WarpOS (Stephan Haeusser can testify this, just ask him), PowerUP on the other side was really really very very true real evil (ask Stephan).

Now lets check how capable OS4 is to run very real true in-the-spirit-of-Amiga (Stephan can testify) WarpOS applications: Zero. Lets check MorphOS' capabilities in this regard: Of course it runs really true amiga-spirited WarpOS applications.

Lets check the really true evil PowerUP: OS4 capbilities to run the really true evil PowerUP applications: Zero (although according to trustworthy sources connected to Hyperion, it is easier to make true real evil PowerUP applications run on OS4 than it is with true real amiga-like WarpOS applications). The same applied for the true real evil MorphOS: Of course it runs PowerUP applications.

This is a very shocking and depressing result. OS4 can't run true real amiga-spirited WarpOS applications, but also it can't run true real evil in-the-sense-of-MorphOS PowerUP applications.

Reality just hit me like a train at 300 kmh/h. I can't hardly breath at the moment due to these unbelieveable revelations.

BTW, what is the de-facto RTG standard on true real Amiga(TM) systems?

Just one remark toward your hangst... what would you call to the PPC code that run on BlizzardPPC!? It's for Amiga and it runs on PPC... It isn't said anywhere that it's on AmigaOS 4. You would be pissed that you keys would be for Amiga OS 68k and still run the RC5 client trough emulator (not that it make sense other then comparing jit against native), if you run a wrapper to enable you to run either PUP/WUP binaries and then you find odd that it's counted as Amiga PPC!? It only make sense... I guess if you want to count on MOS then you should obviously run the MorphOS binaries.

Hm, there appears to be some bug in the input.device of OS4, that
causes unwanted repetition of some characters, particularly
punctuation.

Anyway, if MorphOS is not AmigaOS, in your opinion, then perhaps you
would want to remove those keys contributed by MorphOS systems from
your "official" AmigaOS platform statistics?

In my opinion, MorphOS is more "AmigaOS" than OS4 is, but I've no
problem if you have a different opinion. I'm just explaining that if
you want to do a comparison between MorphOS and OS4, which is what
this news item is discussing, then you need a specific platform for
OS4, that does not contain keys contributed by MorphOS. Presumably,
you would also want to remove keys contributed by PowerUP systems, as
these were never official, and are the forerunner of MorphOS rather
than of OS4. The only reasonable way to do this would be to create a
new platform. The loss would be rather neglible, as the
PowerPC/Amiga OS platform currently has less than a third of keys the
MorphOS platform has.

In reply to Comment 28 (pixie):
Your post doesn't really make sense, but I assume you want to ask
which platform the clients running PowerUP or WarpUP should be counted
as? The answer is simple: PowerPC/Amiga OS, as always.

Of course, if OS4 people want to, they can keep contributing to this
platform. But this would make any such comparison as is made in this
news item impossible, as you're comparing apples with apple pies. As I
think a fair number of OS4 supporters would like to be able to engage
in a constructive and friendly competition with MorphOS, I think
they'd be better of if they created a platform which makes such
comparisons possible.

There's no logic to that sentence. Anyway, my stance towards mos1.5 is
exactly the same as that towards OS4/release: It's not out yet,
therefore it's not an option. Unless you're satisfied with what is
there *now* (that is, OS4/pre or MOS 1.4) I always advise people to
look elsewhere, and if they are not satisfied with something else in a
few months, check back again to see if something has been released.

Does that make me a MorphOS hater? Apparently yes, by your "logic".

Let's put it this way: trough the values expressed in http://www.morphos-news.de/guides/rc5-72/dnet-mos-stats.php we have that:

PowerPC/MorphOS__ | 593,789 | 3,890
PowerPC/Amiga OS_ | 188,089 | 2,547
68K/Amiga OS_____ | 77,180 | 130

You said in comment 13: " Alternatively, it would mean that most of the keys crunched by the "AmigaOS" platform are in fact not crunched by the AmigaOS platform at all (that is, if you define "AmigaOS" as "the name", rather than
PowerUP or MorphOS). Which would be a little weird."

Is there any category for PUP/WUP/PowerPC, I don't see any referenced. When these products were first released they were a subset of AmigaOS. Now, if you crunch them trough an emulated machine as UAE you'll be sending the results (I would assume) to 68k/AmigaOS despite having the main machine x86/PPC based.

PowerUp is MorphOS? How do you diferenciate PowerUP/WarpUP running in Pegasos from PowerUP/WarpUP running trough AmigaOS in a BlizzardPPC? I would like you to adress that question as it would easen up the issue.

For me these are Amiga PPCbinaries and not to be ashamed up. I had a BlizzardPPC and my PPC programs were Amiga programs...

PowerUP is Amiga now? You do remember that WarpOS was the "official",
"name-approved" solution, do you? Well, if PowerUP is Amiga, then why
is MorphOS not Amiga? But you are right, they are Amiga PPC binaries,
rather than OS4 PPC binaries, which means you can't compare that

It's you who are bringing the name issue. As far as I'm concerned I never discriminated PowerUP for not being the 'oficial' solution. It allowed me to run Amiga PPC programs. But as far as the classic line goes, Amiga PPC as you said is either classic PUP/WUP + AmigaOS 4 + A1 OS4, you have always the MOS native binaries...

No. Read the title of this news item. I merely remarked that there is

You really have to choose, either you say that "anything goes", but
then AmigaOS/PPC is MorphOS as much as it is OS4. Or you say that
"Amiga" is the "name only", but then you certainly can't count PowerUP
keys as "OS4" keys. PowerUP was never "Amiga (tm)", and even less OS4.

Right. Which happens to *not* be OS4. But anyway, I don't care - if
OS4 supporters don't want their own platform, it's not something that
matters to me. I just pointed out the simple fact that there is no
such thing as an OS4 platform, which makes the title of this news item
nonsensical.

Besides, it's a somewhat strange topic anyway, as MorphOS is the
system that surpassed the PowerPC/Amiga OS platform on march 17 this
year, as you can see f ex at

Who is talking here on AmigaOS 4, it's worded up PowerPC/Amiga OS, and as long as that discrimination is made, you run WUP/PUP and you run on PowerPC/Amiga OS. As for 'anything goes', it's not because Linux uses Wine that it instantaniously becomes Windows.

The history has tied PUP and WUP to Amiga OS, you have lots of Amigas running these systems and AFAIK MorphOS has it's kind of binaries, so PUP isn't exclusive to MOS.

I know this could eventually make no logic to you, but still and one more time, Amiga OS has evolved to PowerPC, but it had already started that migration on Classic machines. On Classic machines there were PowerUP binaries running *on top* of AmigaOS so turning it PowerPC/Amiga OS.

But why would anyone on a Pegasos do some crunch trough PowerUP, or by doing in their Classic pretending it to be MorphOS. If you run on top of MorphOS you should run the binary of MOS, if you run it on top of AmigaOS you make it an AmigaOS application... simple isn't it?

But on the original platform you had PPC binaries being run on top of the OS either by PowerUP or WarpUP, in the end both would run on AmigaOS, if it's official or not doesn't make them inexistent. As MUI,or any other sets of libraries that aren't oficial but are nonetheless AmigaOS programs... as RC5 client is: a program running on top of AmigaOS in PPC.

Don't want to contribute to AmigaOS/PPC don't run the client trough P/WUP on top of AmigaOS or emulated trough MOS as 68K programs would be counted as AmigaOS/68K

such thing as an OS4 platform, which makes the title of this news item
nonsensical.


Ok, lets assume everyone follows your reasoning.... then we would have 68k/aos1.x,
68k/aos2.x, 68k/aos3.x, ppc/aos3.x, ppc/aos4.x, x86/win3.1, x86/win95, x86/win98, x86/winme, x86/winNT1.x, x86/winNT2.x, X86/winNT4, etc etc etc etc etc.

Yea, that would definatly be better! </sarcasm>

Again, why bother? Give me one logical argument, one that isn't tainted by emotion, please

I'll give you three.

1) OS4 is quite different to any previous "Amiga" OS'es, for example
it uses a whole new kernel, runs on a different hardware platform, and
is not compatible with previous PowerPC/Amiga OS programs. Just like
Apple clients changed platform ID during similar circumstances, it
would make a lot of sense to do this for OS4.

2) Some people, such as the poster of this newsitem, are obviously
looking forward towards a competition between OS4 and MorphOS. I see
nothing harmful in such a competition personally. But of course, this
is currently not possible, as most of the keys for the PowerPC/Amiga
OS platform were not contributed by clients running on OS4.

3) Attempts to politicise the PowerPC/Amiga OS platform by infering
that somehow "PowerPC/Amiga OS" is equal to "Amiga OS4" but contrary
to "MorphOS" will obviously put off a lot of people who do not want to
contribute to "Amiga OS4". As there is no way to select which platform
you want to contribute to, these people would simply have to stop
running the client altogether. This would mean fewer keys would be
contributed f ex to the Amiga team.
