Regarding stability, I cannot run Aros on some computers because of SFS errors. Luckily, it isn't hard to find a pc without that problem.

My main machine has a nvidia card and seems stable in most situations. But on systems with the intel graphics chipset, I seem to get freeze-ups, especially while playing games. So from my viewpoint, the stability of Aros seems to vary, depending on the hardware and software used.

Also it seems odd for a program to run out of stack, when I have plenty of memory. Aros might seem more stable, if it was possible for the system to open more stack, or warn about a low stack before a program gets trashed. Perhaps a warning could advise us to save and restart with more stack. Just a thought

Hey, 1000 posts, whoopie

Congratz on your 1000th, cavemann

Only a few small steps away from reaching the 1K barrier.

Because they're funny:

I think many people who want to run AROS natively are also willing to find the hardware required to run it. I think it's more important for AROS to provide top quality support for a limited range of *available* hardware, as supporting a broad range is way too large a task.

+1

Especially since we're not talking about top of the line hardware. I don't know anything about how powerful a graphics card has to be to keep up with AGA (wouldn't that be the major performance concern?). But AROS does not take advantage of multiple cores and it certainly isn't a memory hog. I wouldn't think it would cost much to build a decent AROS box. Or am I wrong there?

If anything, perhaps keeping enough drivers so that AROS doesn't require difficult to find older hardware. That could drive up the cost and convenience.
