Then I have 8 gigs of dos games to transfer, and many thousands of classic amiga games and apps. Its likely that I'll never be happy with any system, amigoid or other... Always tinkering.

Steven's probably using the best NG OS suited to running old software.
Since OS4's creators have full access to 3.1 that doesn't make sense (and MorphOS is more clearly focused on new software ). Ah, so be it.

Wait a.org has mods?

Yeah I didn't think they deleted whole messages.

My post was a joke about all the coke, crack, heroin, beer, liquor and asian hookers that I have invested in for AROS bounties and AROS coders over the years. As I recall I joked that OS4 and MorphOS didn't do what it takes. WE DO at the AROS camp.

Need meth to code? We'll provide you it. Like ASIAN hookers? Code for us!

It wasn't intended to be insulting to anyone, geez.

Sorry, I can't understand what do you mean with the passage in bold. Download number has been first calculated starting from the moved terabytes (2.77 TB), divided by the size of the package (less than 1 GB): starting and resuming a download would still totalize 1 GB of transferred data. Then it was proved by numbers of hits and visits, so I am sure at least 3,000 copies of the Live! package are now stored on the same number of different hard drives.

This doesn't mean we have 3,000 users, of course, but that there are 3,000 people interested in trying Icaros, which is more likely, and also a good result in general. Even if 1 on 5 would decide to keep AROS installed and play around with it from time to time, that would mean having 600 users. But also gaining 300 would be a great success. We're talking about a hobby, after all, and I can't be happier of the result.

Paolone,

I just tried 1.4 on my windows pc. LOOKS great! Will be installing it on my native box next! Thanks for all your hard work.

You deserve 2 or 3 asian guest services representatives for this! (At least!)

okay, lets say even that method of counting downloads might be inaccurate. taking such a huge piece of a file into account a user might not be successful and choose to restart. even though even halved its still a huge number for amiga relations. even though im not personally interested in aros x86 at this time i applaud.

Yes, you can. It's not as if you can have a "slip of the keyboard", everything you type you do consciously.

Frankly Steven,
Asian hookers don't appeal to me (I'm married and sex is pretty much a given).
Meth and coke, nay I'll just take caffeine.
You could offer to pay me in beer though.

I'd code for beer.

A family site? Are you kidding me?

What if my family happens to like profanity.meth and asian hookers?

Iggy, what kind of beer do you like and what can you help AROS with?

I'd love to see a speech recognition program coded or ported to AROS.

Last I knew this was a PG-13 site. We DO have minors that read this site, so watch what you say or get modded.

Dude, I'm a Mod. Those smoke and mirror tricks don't work.

I just don't seek jokes about illicit drug use and hookers as appropriate for the 13+ crowd.

Though if haywirepc needs a weekend away, I can certainly oblige that. Though in truth, this topic has gone off target and was a bad idea in the first place.

Argo is implying he knows who I am. Yes I happen to be a professional magician.

And also a rapid amiga guy. Is he inviting me for a weekend at his house to do some fun nerd stuff or threatening to ban me from A.org for a weekend? I can't tell. Come on dude relax. I'm sorry my humor was off base for your decency standards. It was all in fun. Relax.

Well the title IS truthful.
You can find out the amount of MorphOS copies sold.
Its just that this doesn't reveal how many active users there are.
And yes, this post has gone on too long since I was able to summarize that in two sentences.

But this is Amiga.org and there WILL be conflict.
