Thanks for your very helpful information!
I will have to wait until I get my V4 and try the available options. It should be relatively easy to setup different memory cards with the versions I want to try out.
I will definitely have AROS because I think this is a very good option and well worth supporting. I like that it is free, of course, but also that it is actively being developed. This is real spirit! It may not at the moment be as efficient as it could be, but with Apollo team working on it, then it can only get better.
ApolloOS, I guess this is CoffinOS: This seems to be a very good option, especially if it is 'currently' faster than AROS.
I can see the benefit of having OS3.1.4, especially coming from an Amiga1200 with OS3.1. It doesn't come with all the features of the other's but is probably very fast. However, with Aminet, as you say, maybe would get the best of both worlds.
They all have their pros and cons, so it really is a matter of trying them out and seeing which suits me the best.
To think, 33 years ago with great excitement, I bought my first Amiga, the A500. Now, all these years later, I am going to be buying, with great excitement, another, new Amiga machine!
