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 always liked my old Amiga 600 with Amiga Workbench 2.05 OS, good old times, good old simple computer games on floppies, Sensible World of Soccer times and so.

In that old times I never knew what a crash or BSoD is, the only reason to RESET Amiga was to load new game, or reload badly written game or demo, but when you entered Workbench is was always stable.

Currently I use UNIX mostly, but I am very impressed about AROS, when I loaded it first time, I felt like home, RamDisk, top toolbar, but when I saw transparent menus I was shocked, so light OS with so great graphics ... I just dunno what to say.

Its nice to hear that they currently develop lightweigth browser based on WebKit and not on fat Gecko, with browser it is great OS for some old laptop, because they mostly are used for, anyway great OS and great news ;)
