Amiga & AROS AmiKit 1.4.0 has been released. AmiKit is a free compilation of more than 300 Amiga programs. It runs under emulation on your Windows system (Linux install guide included). The new version has been graphically improved, is faster and supports dual core CPUs and Vista. For AmiKit to work, you do need Amiga ROMs and the AmigaOS, which can be obtained via AmigaForever, for instance.

I've been running this today, and I'm so impressed with what they've done with the ageing Amiga OS 3.9.

If anyone wants to play around with a pre-configured, hassle-free version of Amiga OS, then this is the way to do it. 100% recommended.

Hassle-free would be Amiga Forever, since it includes the ROM and OS as well as configurations that run the gamut from an ECS game machine to a fairly fancy and fairly modern (for the Amiga) desktop. Or maybe ClassicWB because it uses a somewhat more common version of the ROM and OS.

Granted, those AmiKit desktops look pretty slick.
