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.

I agree with Dammy 100%

Mike, I totally agree with Dammy :

1) amiga inc just gets the most out of their IP, out
of the name they bought, and do nothing for the amiga
(the amiga being the classic amiga evolution, I don't
care about an Tao's intent...).

2) you don't refer to morphos and the pegasos
WHICH ARE AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW; they just miss the
amiga brand: it's definitely a great sucessor of AmigaOS,
rewritten from scratch, and still 100% amiga OS like and
amiga compatible. Really great product, which you can buy
now, made by long time amiga developers (like amiga os 4),
but the project was initiated years ago, while OS 4 is
far from being usable (and a waste of time)


My question is :

why so much loyalty about a company which is just ... a
name... (and whose boss has never had an Amiga IIRC)


- Clearly you are not objective at all -

Only my humble opinion though ;)
Anyway, I know I can't convince you, just like any
fanatic.
