AmigaOS unchained

Sexta-feira, Outubro 23rd, 2009

It has finally happened! It’s great news to see AmigaOS free from it’s legal disputes! Hyperion seem to now have full rights to develop it for whatever hardware platform they desire.

I hope they give the OS a clear roadmap, even if it is primarily targeted to a niche market (like the embedded one, where I think it could have some following). And I also hope they realize that their most probable early adopter userbase will be us Amigans. We nerds that had Amigas 10-15 years ago, and that now have twice that age at least. I think they need to target us first.

Like I’ve seen the honorable Zetr0 say on EAB, the boing ball is on their side now. Let’s see what they do with it!
