Amiga & AROS The Amitlon Kernel Project has released new versions of its software. Amithlon is an emulation-based system allowing users to run AmigaOS 3.9 on regular x86 PC systems, without the overhead of having to load an underlying operating system, unlike WinUAE, UAE, Fellow, or AmigaXL.

I've never used it myself, however I believe the special thing about Amithlon is that it allows AmigaOS, though emulated, to have direct access to the graphics, sound etc hardware of the host PC. I think there's also a way to compile programs to run directly for x86 (eg for CPU intensive plugins). All this makes it the next-best-thing to a native x86 port of AmigaOS.
