I think you would be very wise to do that. If you got a PPC and then couldn't get OS4, you would be feeling as a lot of us have felt over the past few years.

Only a couple of months or so ago it looked like we would never get OS4 for the classic Amigas. But now it's all very exciting stuff

Hey! In just over an hour someone could start a thread titled '1 day until AOS4.0 is released!!!!!' 8-)

exciting, for those with classic PPCs.

Look forward to seeing the YouTube videos of it in action at least ;-) Does anyone intend to do this??

Just something to consider.

If Amiga Inc win their court case against hyperion, then all these copies of AOS 4.0 will be illegal pirate copies.

I still find it annoying that you have to buy this old expensive very specific type of card to run it, but at least the classic users now finally have something they can get their teeth in to!

dont worry when aos4.0 is out the door, i am 100% sure there also will come a new ppc card for the a4000/a1200, it will takes some time to make but i am sure it will come... so just get your hands on a copy

If you are trying to say that piracy killed the Amiga, you are quite wrong, I'd say. Commodore never sold software, at least not as a software company but as a side-product, its main business was hardware, so piracy would have been even "good" for them: since soft was "easy to obtain", more people would have bought the hardware needed to run it. This has happened to many other platforms: PC, Playstation, even Mac (it was told about Mac that they even gave some sort of "carte blanch" to University students to "pass software around", in the believing that they would then buy a Mac to use it).

Of course, I'm NOT defending piracy, but those concepts shouldn't be mixed. And we all know the cause of the Commodore demise: awful management, including nearly no investment in Amiga promotion and advertising, or announcing a new model while they still had a large stock of the old one (A600 vs A1200).

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

I doubt it. If Amiga Inc win, then its up to Hyperion to compensate them for all the copies they sold. That's their job, not ours.

We have quite a few customers in New Zealand and regularly ship there.
Would love to purchase stuff from overseas but that would require a credit card I'm guessing? Plus the shipping would be quite high? Will be checking out a few computer boot sales in the future hopefully will try my luck that way

@ Ferry, your assumption is wrong.

My point is that the Amiga community was generally involved in wholesale software piracy.
That activity, kills commercial software production.
What effect a lack of software has on a platform I leave to you to decide...

My feelings are that a lack of profit for small software houses, with increasingly decrepit hardware and intransigent "I want it all on my 512k A500" users crippled the Amiga... It ain't dead yet!
