Amiga & AROS "Icaros Desktop is an effort to build a modern Amiga-compatible operating system for standard x86 hardware. It's a distribution built atop AROS, which is an open source effort to create a system compatible at the API level with the AmigaOS 3.x series. I recently had a chat to the creator of Icaros, Paolo Besser, about the creation of the OS and why Amiga continues to inspire people today."

That reminds me... while 2nd drives seemed generally ignored, there was some movement (small minority, but still) of getting a 2.5" to 3.5" converter and hunting down a surplus inexpensive drive (typically old one, but which would still be plentiful for Amiga). Seems more rewarding and sensible than 2nd floppy ;) (well, with the small downside on not quite fitting in a 600 - or 1200, but those were much rarer)
