    OS 3.X is best for classic (non-powerPC) Amiga systems, IMHO. I have never tried 4.X as I do not have required hardware (expensive as hell, at least for me).

    As for what you can run, anything you would run in '90s on it. In the past few years especially, new games are constantly made for Amiga, my estimate is around 30-40 per year. Commodore 64 is also having a renaissance, with around 150 and more new games each year since 2016-2017.

    You were tired of mir? How even?

    You can run the newer AmigaOS 4.1, which receives weekly updates through the Software Update app, on newer hardware. But you need to get Amiga-specific hardware for it, though, like the AmigaONE 500 or AmigaONE X5000.

    Exactly. And AmigaOS 4.1 gets weekly updates through the Software Update app.

    Tired of having to uninstall that garbage on every install.
    I can't stand the hijacking of sudo apt-get install and the forced upgrades!
    It's my computer, not Canonical's!

    And funny how you mention other OS's, but macOS is about the only OS where theming is not possible. Windows, Linux, Haiku, AmigaOS (both the old 3.x as well as the current 4.1), BSD, Chrome OS… they all support theming one way or another.
    Wait, is AmigaOS still a thing?

    I want to see a unified and consistent graphical desktop environment across all distributions. Gnome 4x and libadwaita is the closest to that milestone.

    macOS has never allowed theming, and I really hope Microsoft will follow suit in updated versions of Windows 11 and future versions of Windows.
    That's a very strange demand. What harm is theming doing you that you want it completely blocked?
