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.

With apologies for extreme ignorance but will this run on any PPC Mac? I still have my G4 hardware under my desk...


It will run in hosted mode on linux on Mac PPC computers. I run AROS on Xubuntu on my iMac DV+ G3. Even hosted, the OS is VERY responsive. The menus feel so much better than the menus in either linux on the same machine, or OSX on the same machine.

It would be nice to eventually have native support for NewWorld Macs, but don't count on that any time soon. ;)
