Amiga & AROS As Amiga Inc is about to re-enter the computer arena with new AmigaOS4 powered desktop systems as well as with 3rd party embedded products utilizing AmigaDE technology pre-installed, there are a growing number of people who wonder what an advanced classic AmigaOS currently offers. This was an important reason for me to write a simple to understand WinUAE tutorial, so this would hopefully help interested people with setting up a fun and easy to use emulated AmigaOS environment on widely available mainstream Windows computers. This article also includes many WinUAE screenshots and information on acquiring and using freely available software.

> Gateway is now just the past...

Agreed, the Amiga community is stronger without Gateway they are dependent on established OS monopolies.

A similar thing happened to a lesser extend when Commodore bought the Amiga company. Amiga employees were frustrated with all the (mis)management decisions made by the Commodore top because they thought they could make an easy buck with PC clone hardware, eventually killing them in the process, this despite huge PC clone marketing compaigns (almost ignoring their very profitable Amiga branch).
