|After some reading up on things, well, I have been out of the Amiga world for quite a while, I realise now that this post maybe in the wrong section? There doesn't seem to be a page for comparing the different OS's, but then, we probably don't want to encourage any flames, if indeed their would be any.|
Anyway, I've decided to definitely support AROS and use this as my main OS on the V4SA, when it comes. Not that there is anything wrong with using other OS's, but I like the spirit behind AROS, that it's free, continually being improved and is supported by Apollo.
Whatever flavour of OS we use, the Vampire's certainly seem to be great Amiga machines and keeping the spirit alive.
I've recently put my name down for a V4 sa, so looking forward to actually getting one. I currently have an A1200 with OS3.1 and understand that AROS has its basis in this version.
I must admit to being a little overwhelmed by all the OS options. I've heard about CoffinOS, which I believe is based on OS3.9 and wondering if this is better than AROS or just different. I know the Apollo team are supporting AROS and imagine therefore, that this is a very good option for the V4. But how well are the other OS distributions supported for the V4? Would they always be a little behind AROS?
I guess, once I have my V4 I can try them all if I want to, but just wondering what more knowledgeable people might have to suggest.
I strongly suspect that as I've been using OS3.1 on my A1200 then AROS will suit me especially with all it's improvements.
