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.

Yeah, like pre-emptive multitasking and protected memory!

...wait a minute.

In all seriousnesss, I have never used an Amiga, I hope to one day though, but it is true there are some ideas from the Amiga that were years ahead of their time and it hardly surprises me why former users would feel such a strong attachment to the platform, not everyone wants to work on linux. I tip my hat to the developer(s) of this project for working to bring a piece of computing history (and possibly future) to all of us.

Amiga had pre-emptive multitasking. Not protected memory though.
