Surely,since its not done properly on x1000, it goes along.
Too bad at least x5000 it wasnt replaced by FPGA chip

A>I don't remember Timberwolf or OWB being promised by Hyperion or A-Eon.
True, but it was promoted/collected in same times, and was an important decision factor.
TW was collected bounty by Hyperion, unofficially.
Friedens HQ still has a claim
"Timberwolf is the AmigaOS port of Mozilla’s Firefox browser. Currently, the code is based on Firefox 4.0.1, but we’re working on bringing it up to the latest build (18.0.1 at the time of writing, although 19.x is more likely)."
If you wish more unfulfilled AEON matters, Warp3D was supposed to go for 5xxx and 6xxx cards and was never done.

A>Not using OS4 until Linux is fixed or MorphOS is ported sounds irrational. Btw, not porting A>MorphOS to the X1000 is a decision made solely by the MorphOS team, not by A-Eon or A>Hyperion.
AOS4 simply lacks productivity apps and Linux does need fixes to work properly on SI cards. Even GNOME fails without proper 3D. Not to mention KDE etc. Plus, x1000 and x5000 dont have official support so its a bit dirty hacks and waiting for DD images. Contrary, Pegasos support is still included in many distros oficially.
Decision to port to x5000 was MOS team decision funded by AEON, so it seems its down to funding. Ideas seems to be to make x5000 more exclusive then it is.
Back to topic:
Dont see how legal mumbo jumbo will end. OS 3.1.4 is Hyperion saver, but offers "too little, too late". I wish OS 3.9+ would advance as m68k OS, but this simply isnt that.Quote:
Maybe you should reconsinder the exact meaning of MorphOS and „runs“ to get my drift ;)
I always considered MorphOS not only to be "morph" of AOS to more advanced, optimized, beautiful but also morphing as many PPC machines to be MOS-able ("morphing them to Amiga like").[ Edited by vox 29.11.2018 - 05:23 ]
