Who knew the Amiga OS was still kicking? Apparently it is, and there are still "Amigans" out there, living with their beloved alternative OS. More power to them, especially because they've had to suffer through the pain of seeing the OS languish, seemingly for good, then rise again as Amiga OS 4 was sent out earlier this year into the world -- a world where no new hardware that could run it was being manufactured.
For a highly detailed, fun read on the storied past of both the Amiga OS and the Amiga machine, check out this Ars Technica piece.
The Amigans will be happy to know that ACK Software Controls is now planning to release two new PowerPC systems designed to support Amiga OS 4. The consumer systems will run around $500 and a "power" box will run $1500.
