Amiga & AROS Despite the recent emergence of several new ways to actually run AmigaOS 4.0, the supply of machines is still extremely small, and not very future proof. As such, one of the most recurring questions within the Amiga community is why don't they port the darn thing to x86?

If you think that it was the look & feel of AmigaOS that made it special, you are very sadly mistaken. A Linux distribution that looks like AmigaOS is just that: a Linux distribution. It'd be nothing like the real thing.

As for the "It isn't an Amiga on x86", like Thom said, that's a load of crap. There hasn't been any "real" Amiga hardware since the mid 90's, and PPC is no more "real" Amiga than x86.
