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.

You wouldn't run into many problems. But if you do fail then here are some useful tips: http://cloanto.com/kb/3-123.html

Correct, AmigaOS4 is a *PPC* native port of AmigaOS 3.9 with lots of additional enhancements. So for AmigaOS4 you would need to buy an AmigaOne compatible computer or upgrade a classic Amiga computer with a PPC accelerator card. The latter would be less satisfying and far more expensive.
