Amiga & AROS The AROS distribution Icaros Desktop has made its next step towards compatibility with legacy Amiga workbench applications, including an entire AROS enviroment compiled for the classic Amiga platform, which is almost binary compatible with the original Amiga OS 3.1 (and its extensions). When the user needs an old program, he or she only has to fire up the AROS M68K environment and run the application. The Amiga virtual machine can optionally be set to run at startup like a system service.

Mmm... I don't think so. Mac always was the 2nd platform of Amiga users. The use of PowerPC isn't casual.


Only for Amiga users with deep pockets that did not play games or program.

In Europe the Mac was bloody expensive. Usually costing twice as much as the PCs.

Plus I never saw a Mac at a Demoscene party, nor in one of the demomags I used to read.

The first time I saw a Mac live, it was a Macintosh LC in my first university year back in 1994, as there were a few models available for the students.

On the IT department only a few teachers had them, the students were using PCs with UNIX, Linux and MS-DOS/Windows 3.x/Windows 95.
