Re: Scalos V41.6 - alternativní desktop pro MorphOS a AmigaOS

Presne tak, myslim si, ze pro uzivatele MorphOS/Ambientu nema Scalos zadny vyznam. Ambient je mnohem lepsi. Scalos je mysleny spis jako nahrazka Workbench z AmigaOS, ktery s funkcnosti oproti Ambientu dost hodne zaostava - a to se bohuzel taky i Workbenche z AmigaOS 4.1, ten je temer uplne stejny jako v AmigaOS 3. Pro AmigaOS 3 a AmigaOS 4 uzivatele muze mit Scalos nejaky smysl, ale my MorphOSaci mame nas megasupracky Ambient Cool

No pro A1200 to bude mazárna :) Ale je dobrý že to ti borci udělali i pro ostatní systémy.
