Cat herding (managing software developers & engineers) is difficult enough. It certainly doesn’t help that your cats... er... people become demotivated when offered things like large cash bonuses. Why on earth would a large bonus not motivate people?
Money Matters (sometimes ..)
Money Matters was one of the software packages, which the bounty requires to run (http://www.power2people.org/projects/profile/1). So let's try to install it:
This is AROS with a small amigaOS workbench window:
Many events have now been implemented in the AmigaOS host kit for REBOL 3. Double clicking, keyboard events and mouse moves are some examples. These events make the GUI quite functional now.
Thanks to a patch from Richard Smolak (aka Cyphre), the REBOL 3 style browser now runs as well. The style browser is used to help test the REBOL GUI.
Text rendering is now functional from REBOL but not all the features are quite there yet. Richard Smolak (aka Cyphre) provided a much needed patch to enable the use FreeType instead of the proprietary Windows font system. Another big thanks goes out to Michael Trebilcock who provided me with the latest FreeType port.
Back to the classic
As my kids are now in an age (5 years), in which they start liking to play computer games, I decided to dig out my old a600. I bought that machine years ago, when I wanted to add a hard drive etc., but never had time for that.
I also got some discs and some joysticks (competition pro of course) with that machine. And they really enjoyed some of the games. They even think, that this "Amiga" is better than the Wii a friend of them has ;). Well, I think not everybody might agree with that.
Most people found those visible aos3 border gadgets ugly.. they are now gone. See for yourself:
