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.

Yes, it runs Cannon fodder just as well as Windows does. (in emulataion) So i guess the answer you were really seeking is... No.

I just gave a tricky answer to a silly question: since Cannon Fodder runs on completely different hardware than the target one used by Icaros, well, emulation is necessary. The difference, however, is that Icaros is completely auto-sufficient and doesn't need any original Amiga KickStart ROM, since the AROS replacement one does it by itself. And, well, to run Cannon Fodder you just need to click twice on its ADF file icon. The rest is self-explanatory (and reported on the Icaros Manual if further informations are needed).
