Which Hans? I don't have an AGA machine anymore (although I do have WinUAE).

@all

The survey is now just a few shy of 300.

Just a few more days left to submit, so if you haven't done so yet, then please do so now. I'm hoping that we'll still get more submissions than in 2017...

Hans

I think HelloWorld was just joking. Our two main gfx-development guys still using AGA, har har

I'm so funny I should win an oscar.

@Hans

Wow, from over 400 to under 300.

Did the UAE guys lost interests?

Oops! That joke flew over my head.

It's slightly over 300 now, but I'm also suspecting that the UAE guys lost interest.

I've tried out AmigaOS 4 on UAE, and it's nice to try, but nothing like the real thing. I really think that if the A1222/Tabor was already available then reaching 400 would have been easy.

Last chance to participate. I'll be closing the survey in a little over a day (ending Monday night)...

You can bet your bottom dollar on that. Very seriously...

Yeah, really a missed opportunity. And the production of Sam460 shouldn't have stopped either.

A1222 plays a huge part in that,
but I think that the problem also lies with Hyperion's silence
which may helped to avoid flamewars early on but now it's alienating users due to stagnation.

The OS4 scene isn't active enough to entice newcomers, even with what A-eon is doing.

To keep the ball rolling, Hyperion needs to give progress reports, update their blog again.
That is, if Hyperion is even making enough progress to allow for that.


Sounds like they really have issues with writing drivers for onboard i/o

Should A-EON ever make a new motherboard for some reason (upgrade to e6500 perhaps)
then they should consider to include a Pci Express to Pci bridge on the motherboard, connect a Pci hub chip to it
and add a Sil3114 Sata controller, a RTL8169S Ethernet controller and a NEC/Renesans D720101F1 USB 2.0 controller to that.

Something like this, but integrated on the motherboard with ethernet instead of firewire.
https://www.ebay.nl/itm/Gamme-Pro-Cart ... 8b75fd:g:2E0AAOSwa~BYSXzM

Drastic measure since the PPC SOC's already have those intergrated, but we have working and mature drivers for those controllers
and this could shave off years time to port OS4 to a new platform to a state that it is acceptable for end users.

Of course this isn't a possibility for the A1222, but should the X5000 had this then maybe the OS4 team could have gone quicker to the A1222.


Sorry for my off-rails, unproductive Amigaworld.net style ramble.

Won't do that again. (anyway to hide text behind a spoiler button here?)

Yes, I wish Hyperion would engage with the community more.

Without going into details, it shouldn't take years to create an ethernet or sound driver. Yes, we have very limited resources, but amazing things can be done with laser-like focus on well selected priorities/goals.

Interesting results. If the X5000 supported it, I would probably add a 2nd graphics card, although I would need to sacrifice my PCIe 8169 card and use on-board ethernet (which isn't ideal). Would like to have dual monitor support in OS4.

It's weird that there was such a spike in WinUAE users in 2018. Maybe notification of the poll found its way through some other distribution channel that year?

I can't remember exactly what, but I think something happened between the 2017 survey and 2018 that increased the interest in WinUAE. Actually, it may have been QEMU getting Sam460ex emulation support, which happened round then too.
