It occurred to me today that in December i'll have been an OS4 user for six years, since I signed up as a betatester in 2003.

It still seems like OS4.x is a "new era" of Amiga computing in my head, but since I got my first Amiga 15 years ago, i've actually spent 1/3rd of my total time as an Amigan with OS4 as my primary OS at home.

I've been pretty lucky, since my trusty AmigaOne has been rock solid stable all through this time, but I really do use it almost every day (although I probably should change the CPU fan, its still the original one!). I haven't fired up a Commodore Amiga since I sold my CyberstormPPC a couple of months ago (and to be honest I hardly used it by that point).

Although I still own an A500, A500+, A600, A1500 and A2000 (as well as a now CPU card-less A4000), I don't really use "classic" AmigaOS in any shape or form any more, and I don't miss it. OS4.x is giving me as much enjoyment as my 68k Amigas used to, and more.

So, thanks Hyperion and the OS4 team for 6 years of great computing, heres to many more!

    That is quite a long time really. I never really thought about it.

    I remember getting OS4 beta up and running on my BPPC. Unfortunately, I had to take a big sabbatical away from it all.

    A lot has changed in the meantime. 4.0 final was released, OS4 classic, and now OS4.1.

    Somewhere along the line, I inherited an A1, but I never really used it. I decided recently that I should sort it out. Picking up the trail after this long seems kind of weird. I'm slowly getting back into it though.

    I still use the classics, though, along with UAE, which is stupidly fast on my current PC

    That is pretty old. I`d never really thought about it until now.
