Episode 10 - Upgrading AmigaOS 3.9 to AmigaOS 3.1.4

Funky numbering system aside, AmigaOS 3.1.4 is really an upgrade to AmigaOS 3.9 - 3.9 provided a lot of missing pieces 17 years ago for for sure, and provided so great enhanced utilities for playing sounds and watching videos. I also have to admit that the "Reaction" enhancements to the AmigaOS were pretty nice. 

I recently decided to upgrade my Warp Engine to an '060 card. I already own the '040 > '060 adapter, and it works great on my A3640 card, but my Warp Engine was lacking the socket to handle the upgrade, so I am shipping it off to a friend from the Commodore Amiga Facebook group for an upgrade. In the meantime I have to go back to plain vanilla IDE on my Amiga with my upgraded A3640 card. Why not do tackle the "Upgrade" from AmigaOS3.9 to AmigaOS 3.1.4 while I am at it!

I certainly ran into a few issues, which I cover in the video, but everything worked out just fine in the end. I am happy that I could keep the 3.9 enhancements like the great text editor and the reaction interface while still experiencing the power and performance of AmigaOS 3.1.4

Take a look at the YouTube Video here.
