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.

For me the whole point of the Amiga was its hardware.

What we were able to do with clever 68000 Assembly coding coupled with the Paula, Denise and Agnus chipsets.

No emulator is going repeat this type of experience. For those of us that used to do this, the operating system was just a mean to get to the hardware.

Nowadays time is better spend doing clever tricks with GPGPU/Shader and audio DSP programming.

On the other hand, we really need more operating system models besides the Windows/UNIX duality that we get on the desktop.
