Amiga & AROS It's been a really, really long time since the last status update from the AROS team - the last one dates back to before Christmas. AROS was still progressing nicely, as evidenced by the Icaros Desktop releases we've reported on, but it's still nice to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. The AROS guys have given another status update, and a long one to boot. There's also a computer for sale with AROS pre-installed.

Does AROS run well on netbooks like the ASUS EeePC901?

Is it possible to install from USB? I don't have a portable DVD drive so it'd have to work either from 2GB SD in a USB drive or ye olde iomega Zip CD drive (God help me USB 1.0 and only x6!!) if I were to give it a spin.

I don't think it would support the wireless ;)

I'd love to see AROS focus on the Netbook market given that all the Netbook manufacturers so far have the same mainboard with the same components.

I believe it will run, but wireless drivers for most cards aren't implemented yet so its usefulness on a netbook would be severely limited.
