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?

I really hope the NATAMI guys manage to release something


Probably not, the last message is from October (not counting the server move) saying something that "soon!" there will be hardware. That's almost half a year ago.

Sadly, these projects seem always doomed to fail. Jens S. and his Clone-A also seem to have disappeared (well, the Clone-A at least, I saw Jens last year at Breakpoint, but no mention from Clone-A, which he so proudly presented the year before) - there's also no mention on his site.

The Clone-AA project seems to have been used to produce the Indivision AGA scandoubler as it seems to replace the functions of one of the AGA chips with a separate board. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

Since the Clone-A project aims/aimed at replacing all of the original Amiga chips by reverse engineering on a hardware level, no doubt that knowledge was used to create the Indivision AGA. Note however that the Indivision AGA, as far as I can see from the website, is used not to replace the AGA chip, but to snoop the AGA on a hardware level, and output the signal flicker free to a modern monitor.
