Not much, really. Pegasos community seems to me to gather more serious programmers and less end users (only seems as nobody did any statistics on it). But that can be only my impression. Another difference is the Pegasos people (at least here in Poland) are more open to "strangers" who did not decide to join either side of the Force. OS4 fans (we call them "betaknights" ;) act really like fanatics and I don't like it at all. Example? Phoning you late at night to tell you that you're wrong because you wrote a critical comment on OS4 somewhere. Also the Polish OS4 portal is full of stinging irony and reminding you every third word that A1 is the only "true Amiga" (even Classics seem to be not). That is one of main reasons I will not buy an A1. I don't want to join such a community. Pegasos people, on the other hand, are OK but I see everything there starts to fall apart. How long can they wait for another OS update? Now everybody says in open that Genesi spent what it had and the whole buzz around Peg is over. Results? Not pretty much impressive. I observe I've become more anxious (with age ;) and don't like waiting. I'd waited many years for something to happen with Amiga, as I bought my A1200 just after Commodore went bancrupt. Nothing really happened and not much is happening today. So why get frustrated?
