Amiga & AROS The first "point release" of the AROS distribution VmwAROS has been published, and it's available on its website. This version introduces a lot of changes and many new features that make it visually different from regular AROS build. Ken Lester's double state icons, for instance, make VmwAROS look more Amiga-like, and former Amiga users can also continue using their applications thanks to AmiBridge, a poweful scripting system which allows launching AmigaOS programs straight from AROS. A big effort has been made to enhance VmwAROS useability and user-friendlyness.

Amiga had a chance to shine. Thousands of commercial boxed apps. Games came to the amiga first and then ported to PC. The Video Toaster meant that if you were into desktop video, you 'had' to get an Amiga. ah those days.
BeOS didn't get that chance; it was killed off with the focus shift right before it looked interesting. Haiku now has to build its way up almost from scratch.
