Amiga & AROS "Icaros Desktop is an effort to build a modern Amiga-compatible operating system for standard x86 hardware. It's a distribution built atop AROS, which is an open source effort to create a system compatible at the API level with the AmigaOS 3.x series. I recently had a chat to the creator of Icaros, Paolo Besser, about the creation of the OS and why Amiga continues to inspire people today."

nah, some had extra drives, but not most. I think most purchased th 512KB expansion. disk copy programs would read the entire disk to memory before swapping. I did buy the HD though. The Amigas were more or less crushed by PCs when the A1200 became available.
