In a much anticipated announcement Hyperion Entertainment proclaimed the immediate availability of AmigaOS 4.0 for registered AmigaOne customers. The fortunate Amiga users who purchased an AmigaOne system can download the final update directly from their website.
Originally released in May of 2004, Amiga OS 4.0 is the most stable, modern and feature-rich incarnation to date of the multi-media centric operating system launched by Commodore Business Machines in 1985 with which it still retains a high degree of compatibility. After five years of hard work the team behind the project can bask in the glory as Amiga users explore the full potential of the new Amiga Operating System.
The statement also pointed out that the availability of PowerPC hardware suitable for operation with Amiga OS 4.0 will be announced by third parties early in 2007. The release of new hardware will be needed as Amiga users who do not own an AmigaOne system are already expressing a strong desire to sign up to the new platform.
