Main new features include a fresh new look, faster and more stable engine, support of new 24bit themes, improved Windows installer, choice of two automatic installers for Linux platforms and much more. For AmiKit to work, you do need Amiga ROMs and the AmigaOS, which can be obtained via AmigaForever, for instance.

Huh?

Please excuse what is probably an obvious question. Although a long-time alternative OS and emulator hobbiest, I am unfamiliar with AmigaOS and related emulators.

So AmiKit is an Amiga emulator that includes various software packages. But in order to use it you must already have the Amiga OS and ROM files. But to obtain these files, you must buy Amiga Forever, a different emulator program?

But if I purchase Amiga Forever in order to get the OS and ROM files, I would already have an emulator so I wouldn't need AmiKit?

Obviously I'm confused. The OSNews "article" could have explained this better...

I ~did~ read that, and it didn't answer my questions. Neither did you.

I could have posted a topic at the AmKit forum, but I'm not a member there. However, I have been a member at OSNews for a very long time, and know that the members here are generally helpful and friendly.
