Hi Peter, OS4 is indeed a cool operating system, I am also active there as "Massi" and I use it on a daily basis (more or less).

Decent but still expensive hardware exist, moreover it can also be emulated through a proper version of UAE emulator for Windows / MacOSX / Linux.

The current version is AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition, visit the official web site http://www.amigaos.net/

For those interested, "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic Amiga" (= Commodore Amiga with a PowerPC accelerator) can be executed through UAE (WinUAE / Windows, FS-UAE / Mac, ...) Amiga emulator.

This way one has just to purchase a copy of the operating system which costs about 25-30 EUR.
