In reply to Comment 18 (Kjetil):
> Itís not like you are can compare them equally yet

Of course you can! They are both work in progress, and comparing "the latest betas" of the two is a good way to see the state they are in at this particular point. A very interesting comparison IMHO.

> OS40 continues to be unfinished work

MorphOS is also a work in progress you know, even though the latest public release doesn't lack as many important components as the latest public release of the OS4 did (the pre-release).

> there are several components not present in the present beta if Iím not
> mistaken

I would at least expect the "OS4 beta" to ship with all necessary drivers for peripheral devices, I would expect lots of things to have migrated to PPC especially the P96 and all the other things that made the "pre-release" so unbearably slow, I would expect improvements in the 68k emulator, I would expect improvements in the TCP/IP stack and network drivers (I have not been able to get it working satisfactory at all), and last but not least, I would expect wheel-mouse support (a small thing to ask for perhaps, but a real annoyance to live without). Those are all very basic things that really should have been in the pre-release from the beginning.

It would be really nice if they also managed to ship it with PowerUP and WarpUP support, as well as the JIT emulator, and if they manage to get those things so seamlessly and transparantly integrated into the OS as they are in MorphOS. However, I believe that the chance of that happening at *this point* is close to zero.

> You canít really compare them on software titles ether as there MorphOS has
> bin around longer then AmigaOS

Both OS's are currently in development, and *of course* you can compare the current state in which they both are right now. And that is interesting!

And when is an OS finished? When development stops? Isn't that more equal to "death" than "finished"? IMHO, an OS that is still being actively developed is never really "finished", so what you may compare is different public releases and, as in this case, current betas, which should reflect the current state of the OS's pretty well ...
