Amiga & AROS A new AROS status update has been published. The biggest news: "Michal Schulz has made the miracle, and a whole new chapter in AROS history begins. Starting from today, you can grab the 64 bit native flavour of AROS from our website. This new version is obviously more advanced than the usual one, and has limited memory protection and GRUB loading modules. A initial wall for 4 GB of RAM will be removed as soon as proper MMU handling is done. In order to run the 64 bit native version of AROS a 64-bit x86 processor like AMD Athlon 64s or latest Intel Core2s is needed."

I haven't followed it too much. Is it Linux-based or does it just use some components like GRUB?

It isn't Linux based, it is based on and is a reimplementation of the classic Amiga OS but for the X86 architecture. And they do use some components like GRUB....

Amiga OS on a 64bit CPU!!!! ( ^^)y Well done guys!
