Amiga & AROS Sure, we have AmigaOS and MorphOS, but those cost money and require special hardware. For those of us more interested in running an Amiga-like operating system on regular, x86 hardware, there's AROS. Two AROS distributions, Icaros Desktop and AspireOS both saw new releases recently.

paolone,

It wouldn't have hurt to qualify the statement. If someone said an OS supports video acceleration in general terms, but it turns out only to support one type of GPU, that might be a bit misleading even though I understand the logic both ways. But now that it is clarified everything is good in the world!

Why are you asking this to me? I didn't write the news. =)

On the Icaros website, however, it should be clearly specified that hardware acceleration is good for most GeForce GPUs and Intel GMA ones. It's stated also on the ReadMe and on the manual... Well, anyway I am happy it's now been made clear.
