    To my surprise, there is an Amiga Operating System that is still in development.
    http://www.amigaos.net/

    Who knew? Apparently it runs on some custom Power PC hardware, but actually supports internet browsing, Blender and other office needs.
    Pretty cool.

    We have some old G4's at work, I wonder if it would run on that?

    AmigaOS was way ahead of its time, good to see someone's still playing with it.

    I used to have an Amiga with AmigaOS. I don't remember the version but looking at pictures online I will have to say it was 2.0. I distinctly remember the all the grey colors.

    I wish that I was into computers back then. I would have had a lot of fun learning about them.
    Instead I was too busy playing drums and skateboarding :D
    If I could go back and "do it all over again" I would definitely learn about computers and got a degree in computers as well.
