Now I can post the official figures. On the first day, I thought that the poll had a small hiccup as I tried to correct the name of it. The results didn’t arrive I thought. Well, I have gathered all of the numbers for everyone to see below in this article.
The question was: “What OS should be proposed by reselers as an option for the Vampire V4 Standalone ?” I tried to change it after I saw grammar errors in the question title. It seemed like the results stopped for some reason as I’ve never tried out this WordPress Poll plugin before. I’ve never got a request from Amiga retailers regarding a poll. It means that the Amiga market wants to know where it should go and it warms an Amiga user heart to help the retailers. We at Amitopia Amiga Magazine want Vampire V4 Standalone to sell! New 68k Amiga isn’t seen that much.
I configured it back to the original question that I got from the retailers to our mail post at amitopia dot com. The numbers seemed to start to work again as it all seemed to be a WordPress cache issue. Then after a short time, there was no hiccup at all as I saw that the corrected grammar one also got the results it should have.
Well. I have gathered numbers from both of the results. There were no hiccups at all which I am very happy about.

This result of the Poll shows that the interest for Classic Amiga is still strong. AmigaOS 3.1.4 won with 818 votes. AROS which is a nice Open Source AmigaOS solution got 371 votes with TOS on the last with only 135 votes.
With these results all Amiga retailers that sell the Vampire V4 Standalone should focus on AmigaOS 3.1.4 and AROS to be bundled we think. It should be an option for users to either go for AmigaOS 3.1.4 or AROS. Not everyone wants to pay an extra license. AmigaOS 3.1.4 wins lots of hearts because it continues the Amiga legacy which lots of people still love.
Amitopia Amiga Magazine wants to thank the retailers for sending us the request. They wanted not to be mentioned as it is for marketing purposes and also to see what people want to buy. Amiga retailers live because of you and we are glad to help.
