Default Re: 3 days until AOS4.0 is released!!!!!

Now I have a BPPC and will buy my copy of os4.0

But,weren't we all Amiga fan boys back in the day? I wager that fandom didn't stop most of us gathering up a few dodgy floppies along the way...

Today, given the number of posts I see about non working WHDload installs (mainly due to pirate keyfiles) My faith in the Amiga community to wholeheartedly support current, active and developing software is limited.

Bear in mind, the tiny number of potential classic PPC customers, means that even a small loss to piracy could mean the difference between a profit or loss situation for Hyperion. That is assuming of course that a profit is even possible given the man years it has taken to get the product out of the door.

MY MESSAGE IS: DON'T PIRATE OS4 CLASSIC

I second that opinion of course. Now that we're finally going to get OS4, it would be crazy to shoot ourselves in the foot and end up getting no updates and support. In fact, I may insist on paying for it twice :-D

I'm almost tempted to buy it even though I don't have a PPC card, just in case some crazy foo decides to sell a PPC card on the cheap ;-)

I was thinking of buying a copy as well just in case I ever end up with PPC hardware again.

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.
