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.

m68 & ppc are both big-endian architectures, and the many registers of ppc are very usefull for emulation purposes. so ppc was the better alternative, at least until the end of the 90s.
