Just wondering if you can run old amiga software like demos and games on the AmigaOne ?

Thanks

No demos or games work. Only stuff like word processors.

To put it better, most os friendly stuff works, for everything else you can use runinuae which runs via emulation but directly from the os.

WHDLoad does not run on a AmigaOS 4.1 Classic machine, does it? Or does it detect and use the 680x0 on the PPC card?

OS4 can not make use of the 68k CPU on a Classic machine, it always uses Petunia (the built-in emulator). The problem with games and demos is that they would need direct access to all the other hardware too, not just the 68k. It's best to just have a dual boot system with 3.x installed.

OP isn't talking about OS4.1 Classic, he talks about AmigaOne which is purely PPC based and has no 68k or other classic hardware inside so dual booting 3.x isn't possible.
