    good interview. I figured the coders developing for MorphOS are doing it because they like it. Much respect to Jacek.

    Agreed, the developers are really cool people and are easy to approach and engage with.

    Nice interview, but some strong opinions detected:

    "AmigaOS 3.2 basically just re-implements things done by Haage & Partner 20 years earlier."
    "YAM died in 2000 when the original author stopped developing it, to be honest."

    ;-)

    Is it me or the devs and users of our platform are among the youngest within the Amiga ecosystem? I mean, under or borderline 40 yrs old (like Jaca) should be still considered young for an Amiga user/dev, right? I think you could tell only by MorphOS design that its contributors are younger as it has a more bold approach and incorporates many design ideas of the latest's Amiga heydays. I am same age and I 've also observed that I am usually the youngest within our amiga shows, while older attenders (i.e. 50>) they are usually interested (mostly) on stock 68k and perhaps fpga stuff. On the other hand, younger the attenders, the more they get interested in MorphOS (more open on its approach, imho).

    Btw, great interview which I truly enjoyed :)

    Not all of the MorphOS devs are that young anymore. I'm 45. I feel younger though :-)

    Nope.

    General rule for Amiga users of all kinds:

    US -> geeks that could afford the A1000 at launch most of them now around 60
    West Europe -> teens that got an A500 in the late 80s so 45-50
    East Europe -> teens that started with an A500 of A1200 in the early to mid 90s so around 40

    Exemptions exist to proof the rule....
