So this is "it's own thing", with no lagacy to other operating systems such as Linux etc. There needs to be another "it's own thing", but as an Amiga OS.

And yes I did say "lagacy" in reference to other legacy operating systems.

I've just had a play around with it on my Pi-3B. It's running so fuckin' quick, none of the shitty lag that Raspian sports.

Just about to hook it up to my router, let's see how well it performs on the WWW.

Hmmm, not bad! Heaps quicker than Raspian.

Sorry for the lopsidedness, you'll just have to lay on your side.

My bad!, its's actually 16GB card.

Looks like it's tried to open as fullscreen, but maybe the system or the game or something can't quite figure out what res to put it into, so it's "tried" to become a fullscreen, but failed, leaving you with a transparent blocked off overlay that you can't quit..

Is there something like AltF4 to kill the current app, or a way to bring up the TaskMan or something?


...also.. eeeuw. .com!!

Dunno Jay, I'll try that later. What you say makes sense, it never crossed my mind that it could be an invisible full-screen application blocking the mouse. Thanks for the tip.

Fuckin' hell, Jay!... The price of some of the games on the store, I've just seen two for a tenner each. You could make bucket-loads on there mush!

Just got the goss: Some games work and some just simply aren't compatible with ARM7.

Ah, that makes sense.
Probably hard coded for specific abilities on a specific chipset.
... stick to BASIC
