cool man watched a bit of that video might check it out bro

It was good back in the day...but some people just will not let it die.

 

Linux has an issue with not enough software developers....Amiga is like 10 thousand times worse :classic_sad:

So at the moment its really just a nostalgia thing.

May she rest in peace.

 

So at the moment its really just a nostalgia/retro gaming thing.

 Sorry for necroing, couldn't help but add .02.

I guess, although the original Amiga OS had very little in common with Linux, it was much lighter. In fact most games etc. would just use a very low level API layer and program the hardware directly, whereas in Linux (and Windows) everything has to go through libraries and kernel drivers.

On the older systems like x68 based Macs (pre PPC), Amiga, Atari ST you could program in x68 assembly using an assembler or inline assembly via C so you could get as "close to the metal" as possible (since speed and resources were so limited relatively speaking) and make direct calls with minimal layers versus the HAL and APIs of modern OSes like Windows which rely on modern compiler optimizations to get the code running as fast as possible and making modern languages much easier to work with like 4th generation (IE Python, SQL, Perl, etc..) for programmers. Back then we didn't have such advanced compilers that could take even VB/VBA level code and have it running nearly at if not equal to VC/VC++ code.

 

I worked on some projects back in the early 90s in C where it just was easier to code in x86 via inline assembly using Borland's C products for sake of efficiency and speed especially when you needed to communicate with specialized hardware and/or needed to write your own drivers or heavily modify pre-existing libraries or code to get them up and running (I'm looking at you endless army of communication boards of all ilks).

I had a Commodore 64 sometime around 1982. Did the Amiga come along after that?

 

Transition for 8-bit (6502/6510) to 16-bit (with some 32-bit properties) (68000) systems back then:

 

Apple:  Apple II -> Macintosh

Commodore: C64 -> Amiga

Atari: 800 (and XL derivatives) -> ST

does anyone know where I can buy papyrus paper? 

 

Why? Do you have fond memories of having fun with papyrus and hieroglyphs back in ancient Egypt, or are you necroposting and trolling a little?

It's called retro computing. I rarely partake - I guess it's mostly done occasionally for nostalgia reasons that could be difficult to understand unless you owned any of the now retro machines. Anyway, who are we to judge people's state of mind, on this forum no less? Best to keep our sense of irony to ourselves, the conversation will be better for it.
