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."

...when he - in the editorial "Three Men, a Cow, and the Beating of the Dead Horse"* wrote following:

If you want to see a future for the Amiga platform, stop waiting for AmigaOS4 and its lawsuits and lack of hardware; forget MorphOS which you cannot buy anywhere right now (nor hardware that runs it). Focus on the option that is open source, unencumbered by legal issues, available now, runs on standard hardware, and can really use your time and devotion: AROS. At this point in time, that is where the future of the Amiga platform lies.
