      And do you have an answer yet? Because last time this came up in the forums, you guys didn't have one. It's just "something something leave us alone we can have our alternative OS if we want to" which okay great I agree... but that isn't an answer to that question. Just what exactly is it that's interesting about a 90s era desktop OS that had almost no market penetration to the point where Haiku's existence is the only reason people even remember that it was a thing? At least with AROS, the Amiga was an important cornerstone of computing history so there's something to be nostalgic about.

        I love Haiku for its simplistic interface.

        Also, not sure why one would want to use AROS when one can use the real thing: AmigaOS 4. It's much more pleasant and modern and thanks to the built-in software updater, updating is a breeze (except for major upgrades, e.g. 4.0 to 4.1 or 4.1 to 4.1FE; that still requires a boot medium). All old Amiga apps that run on AROS also run fine on AmigaOS 4. The only thing that AROS has going for it is that it's free, but that's it.

          Does AmigaOS 4 runs on non-overpriced hardware? You know, commodity hardware you can buy cheap in any place
