Amiga & AROS AmiKit 1.5.0, the high-end Amiga on your PC, has been released. 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.

AmiKit; the gateway drug!

Right; for acquiring the tiny shiny heart of the Amiga Forever property, and your grudging thanks to the AmiKit people, your energy-efficient 4-core 4GB machine of today can also have (in a nook) a well-designed OS that doesn't have the dug-in feel of MacOS X 10.4 or 5 or Windows 7. It is more like you and your work are there, than 10,000 conjoined, congenitally arthritic helping hands.

My thanks to the 8 or 15 maniacs making me feel less like I love a zombie, and more like individual good work is rewarding.

I may just become the nth person to develop healthy habits around backups, VMs, and multiple systems with this stuff egging me on.

I think you meant 'Windows 6', unless of course you work for Microsoft.
