Amiga & AROS The first "point release" of the AROS distribution VmwAROS has been published, and it's available on its website. This version introduces a lot of changes and many new features that make it visually different from regular AROS build. Ken Lester's double state icons, for instance, make VmwAROS look more Amiga-like, and former Amiga users can also continue using their applications thanks to AmiBridge, a poweful scripting system which allows launching AmigaOS programs straight from AROS. A big effort has been made to enhance VmwAROS useability and user-friendlyness.

AROS, especially in its VmwAROS incarnation is fast becoming a usable OS. It self-hosts, has a variety of useful programs (and an even larger variety of games) and to be frank, is just about the prettiest-looking alternate OS out there (Better looking than some well known Linux distros, even)...

Congratulations to the VmwAROS and AROS teams. Now I just need to go try this out.
