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.

Loved Amiga/Aros

I loved my Amiga back in the day and Aros is a nice homage to Amiga. But, anyone who wishes to try it out I wish them the best of luck. The driver situation is horrible. Not that this is their fault, per say. But there are very few drivers for anything even remotely out on the market. Finding compatible pieces of hardware takes great care, and lots of ebay. I wish anyone wishing to build an Aros box the best of luck.
