Episode 8 - Amiga OS 3.1.4 and Best Workbench

In this weeks episode, I cover some of the details behind the newly released Amiga OS 3.1.4 - what enhancements it brings and how to install it on your real Amiga.
I have been an Amiga OS 3.9 user since it came out in 2002, and I have been fairly happy with the performance and capability of that OS, but all work really stopped on it after that. It was a breath of fresh air to see that Hyperion picked up the torch and started supporting the 3.1.X operating system again.
Some of the guys who were involved in the update also released "Best Workbench", whichs adds some additional enhancements and features to AmigaOS 3.1.4 or even your basic AmigaOS 3.1 installation.
I had some issues with the new OS seeing my hard drive, but I was able to resolve most of them my choosing "Direct SCSI" and removing long file name support from my drives. (I generally use the SCSI on my Warp Engine)
