Default Linux Action Show reviews AROS & mentions AmigaOS & MorphOS

It's rare that mainstream shows & publications mention Amiga, AROS or MorphOS. So when we find positive reviews and mentions we will pass them along here for everyone to enjoy. The following video is from the Linux Action Show in 2011. It's great to watch what media outside the community thinks about us. Fast forward to 29:00 to get to the AROS bits.

Yes, as I already stated. But I'm sure most have never seen it. I only just found out about it myself.

OK,

I went there and watched the show, all 60 minutes of it. I liked what I saw with AROS,so I went to their site. Now I must be a blooming idiot, or have gotten used to steam and origin downloads.

but

Is it AROS, ICAROS, ICAROS live, ARES or Broadway. I was initially interested in Aros Broadway, went to their site, and got a server down error. So then I went to AROS and really became confused, after going through 2 hours of reading and other junk, I finally thought I hit gold with a download section, so I clicked on it to download I assumed what would be an ISO file, but got no download box, or anything that a download was happening. I figured well maybe the download was so small, and my gaming computer so fast that it didn't have time to show it, went to my download folder and my Icaros file read 16k or something part, and 0k Icaros downloader.
Now my other question is once if I can ever figure it out I get a good AROS download, does this include broadway, or is broadway a whole different ISO, or is it a bunch of programs that are patched into AROS.

I must be a blooming idiot, or the writers of these programs don't know how to follow ISO procederes. Usually when you make an ISO, when you load it into your computer it acts just like a regular OS and loads in the whole complete production for you.

Even Linux is easier to do than this crap.

When I do the same (Icaros Desktop) it shows 1.2 GB... I have installed it myself a couple of times (on VMWare) and never had any problem with it.

You should be more careful with wording because everything you say can and will be used against you

Hi,

Sorry OlafS3,

But right now I am so angry, for some reason, my internet is stopping for about 5 to 10 minutes and then it loads another Kbyte, so it is not there sites I may have picked up a bug or something. Checking out the situation now. So, I really like what I see on Aros Broadway, but yes it is confuzing. Is Aros Broadway, a whole OS or is it a a bunch of programs that you load in like the Boing bag, once you get Aros installed. If my internet will start back going (I called my provider) because I am not the only one having this problem, all my kids are having the same problem. Either we all got the same virus, or the internet provider has a problem. Anyhow I am a very impatient person when I see something I want to try. I even took an old gateway dual core computer at 3.2 ghz with an ATI radeon 70 card in it, and installed in a new hard drive to try it out. I anxiously await for AROS to download. It has been 4 hours now, and it has downloaded 938K. Sorry about my rant. My network speed test shows 10 mbyte, but my file download check shows stoppage of more than 30 minutes.

I am so confuzed right now.

Sorry but at least Icaros download works. So the problem must be somehow computer or provider related. I never used Broadway myself (just Icaros) but it is certainly similar. Both are complete distributions with preinstalled software. With Icaros download (exe) you create a directory that includes the iso that you burn and that use to install it in VMWare or real system). I do not know how it works with Broadway but propably the same.

Is the problem only with downloads or everything web related?

Do you have more than one system where you can test it?

Not "Boingbag" (that is a update). AspireOS, Broadway and Icaros are full installations including everything.

When a couple of systems are affected and there is virus protection on the system then it sounds not like virus. You could restart the internet (rooter), that helps sometimes.

@OlafS3,

Ok, it seems to be on all computers in the house, today, even when I try to watch the video, it stops, seems the only way to get it started again is by moving the mouse, checked for virus, nothing, used Microsoft essentials defender, and webroot security. Malwarebytes came up with 10 chk errors, but removed them and now my system is entirely clean and has same problem. Another thing is if I keep mouse pointer on video bar at the bottom of video and move it on the travel ball, it will keep playing, but if I put the mouse pointer before or after the ball it will stop playing the video. Oh well another great day in the micro soft world.
Maybe I will quit working on computers and go back to building muscle cars. HMMM! come to think about it I had a lot of trouble with my muscle cars stopping too.

Is your problem solved? It is strange that all computers are affected at the same time so either a virus has spread or your connection is simply slow. Have you contacted your provider and tested your rooter?

Most probably isp connection issues, but is easier to blame it on AROS. I never had a problem getting isos from there, only a couple of times got server error and was because they were doing site maintenance.

I seem to recall watching this video months and months ago. Fair review, missed a few points, highlighted a few others... I really wish they'd dig into MorphOS.

: )
AROS Broadway iso is down (too outdated) . IcAROS and AspireOS can be downloaded normally. A new Broadway ISO will come later this year.
