"What applications would you like to see available for AROS?"
"I'm a video editing guy, so simple video editing software for AROS would be cool. There are several open source candidates for this, but we need Firewire support first and then we can go forward from there."
AMEN! Now that's what made an Amiga and Amiga and BeOS BeOS are Multi-media apps...
...both of which are either absent or suck on both systems atm, and I'm sure not many people out there still have a Video Toaster.

Great interview, one of the best I have ever read (I guess because it touched on so many things I am interested in, and I respect and identify with Bill Evans interests so much). Makes me wish I had a big chunk of money to donate to AROS bounties.
It also makes me want to look at AROS again much more closely.
And let's get Open Video Toaster/Flyer ported to AROS too!

...it was a good interview wasn't it? I'm shocked there are not more positive comments. It is good to know this guy has years of experience with coding, Amiga, and other things of interst at that. :)

I wonder how's AROS going on the Efika... what's left to do and what works ATM... it's pretty exciting as it would be the only useful OS you could run on it :-)
