Amiga & AROS The AROS distribution Icaros Desktop has made its next step towards compatibility with legacy Amiga workbench applications, including an entire AROS enviroment compiled for the classic Amiga platform, which is almost binary compatible with the original Amiga OS 3.1 (and its extensions). When the user needs an old program, he or she only has to fire up the AROS M68K environment and run the application. The Amiga virtual machine can optionally be set to run at startup like a system service.

Somehow you've comploetely missed the entire point of AROS. AROS was never intended to be another way to emulate Amiga 68K software. AROS is a reimplementatin of Amiga OS 3.1 on modern hardware with new extensions that allow AROS users to have all the things they'd expect from a modern system, such as 3D hardware acceleration using Gallium3D.. The article was just stating that if you want to emulate Amiga 68K software under AROS, it's now seamless. Stop trolling.
