Amiga & AROS A new AROS status update has been published. The biggest news: "Michal Schulz has made the miracle, and a whole new chapter in AROS history begins. Starting from today, you can grab the 64 bit native flavour of AROS from our website. This new version is obviously more advanced than the usual one, and has limited memory protection and GRUB loading modules. A initial wall for 4 GB of RAM will be removed as soon as proper MMU handling is done. In order to run the 64 bit native version of AROS a 64-bit x86 processor like AMD Athlon 64s or latest Intel Core2s is needed."

AROS64 allows the Devs to break current code to allow modern OS features that would leave many AROS32 devs and users screaming for blood. With AROS64, parallel developement can now coexist peacefully until 64 bit matures and then can be back ported to AROS32 if the Devs agree to do so.

It is really good to hear that AROS64 will be used to make AROS into a more modern OS. I thought AROS64 was nothing more than just a port to x64, not a branch from the x32 code.
