Amiga reborn...

So the main disk failed in my Amiga. By failed I mean completely stopped spinning, does not even get warm when I plug it in. While I work to save any data I can, hopefully more on this later, I decided to "start from scratch". The value in starting over is I can take a fresh look at Amiga OS and what it's like to use the various websites for software. I was able to install the OS and all the updates in a matter of minutes with little hassle. Thinking back to the early days of OS 4 it's really progressed well. For those who don't know the Amiga and the latest official OS (yes there are less official ones out there...) started in 2002 by a small team of under paid coders around the world. Now they are still under paid but there are more of them and working every day to add features and improve the system. It's really a tremendous see how their efforts can come together in to the system as it is today. Don't get me wrong, we still have a long way to go before I think it would be ready for a casual user, but the progress this far has been encouraging! So here is another screen shot, this is on my new drive
