Amiga & AROS While I'm still chipping away at my AmigaOS 4.1/sam440ep review (try writing a thesis and a large review at the same time), Cloanto released AmigaForever 2009. AmigaForever is a very full-featured AmigaOS emulation tool, packed with various different ROMs and AmigaOS versions (1.3-3.x), as well as tons and tons of included games, software, and demos. This new version comes with even more stuff.

It's good

Very good that Amiga has so many supporters even today. Although I was (and I'm somehow) a big fan of 16/32-bit Atari (ST/Mega/STE/TT030/Falcon) ;-) These were not so popular like Amiga at the end of the day (back in time :-), but these computers have found their own niches here and there. If you'll check the web, you'll see that Atari has also quite strong fan base today - not so wide like Amiga, but as for less popular platform, quite impressive.

Don't you think it would be great to have Amiga and Atari back again? ;-) Now we have x86 variants everywhere, people used to program using Java, C#, sophisticated frameworks, etc. Who cares about good C and assembler libraries written by yourself? :-)

Times have changed, but I'm still excited the same way about IT technologies like when I was a kid, when Amiga was the top multimedia computer and even Atari ST was giving me and my friends a lot of shivers (especially when we were trying to copy Amiga results as much as possible).

Greetings to all Motorola-based-machines fellows!

I've used Classic99 before, and it works. I've also used the V9T9 emulator for the Ti99/4a computer. Worked OK too.

There are Atari emulators, at least for the 2600 game systems. I've had a lot of luck with those - actually played the games better than the commercial retro game packs.

A quick search shows that there are quite a few emulators for the Atari ST and their other computer systems. I've no experience with them...
