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.

The AmigaOS4 screenshots until now are mainly meant to demonstrate the customization freedom and other integrated functionalities. The screenshots do not show the standard AmigaOS4 look! However what is being shown is that AmigaOS4 can fully be customized if you don't like the standardly provided environment.

To get an idea of how flexible the classic AmigaOS is take a look at the following screengrabs from various AmigaOS users: http://www.gfxbase.com/wbshots/wbshots.shtml
