Amiga & AROS The Amitlon Kernel Project has released new versions of its software. Amithlon is an emulation-based system allowing users to run AmigaOS 3.9 on regular x86 PC systems, without the overhead of having to load an underlying operating system, unlike WinUAE, UAE, Fellow, or AmigaXL.

Was I the only one that thought Amithlon died in the water when the original developer had problems with rights/money? Bernd [something], can't remember his name.

Oh well, I must check this out ;)

Parts of Amithlon was released after it "died" - and IIRC the kernel portion was available from the start.

It's nice to see that it's being updated but it's sad that it's so difficult to install. The strength of Amithlon was that you could pop it in a cd drive, boot off it and have a working Workbench in front of you. When you have to install on a harddrive it it's a very, very different story though.

Bernd Meyer was the original Amithlon dev and IIRC the project died after licencing issues with H&P and Amiga Inc.
