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."

Does it have the Guru meditation?
I need that feature so badly I would install and use it as my main OS just for that.

If it doesn't have an implementation of "Guru Meditation Error" then it ain't no AmigaOS clone.

Neither did the Amiga from Workbench 2.0 on.

But I agree - I miss the verb "to guru"!

It is a bit lozy argument...

Even AmigaOS 4.0 abandoned Guru Meditation in favour of Grim Reaper advice system window!

Thanks to Memory protection in AmigaOS 4.0 you can even suspend or kill a task which caused an error!
