Amiga & AROS AmigaOS 4.1 update 5 has been released. It's a bug-fix release, but does contain new features as well. For instance, Amiga 68K emulation has been improved, and a full Workbench 3.1 installation is now included, as well as several authentic Amiga ROMs and Workbench files. Available for free for eligible platforms, including SAM devices.

It's not about being "worried" about "wronging". Some people feel content downloading software that they use, abandonware or warez. I feel content buying it, and supporting the retailers. It has nothing to do with what I could do, or could not do. I'm very well aware of my other options using WinUAE and a downloaded ADF file. That's not the option I want to use. I want to buy the software. If you don't want to buy it and don't understand why I'd want to buy it, or why I should by it... that's fine by me

Now, you might not understand me or that idea, and that's not important to either of us. I just want to be pointed in the right direction.

I respect your stance, but be mindful that by paying for software (especially old software) you're not always giving money to people who developed it or deserve it. In many cases, the original developer doesn't get a penny, as they may no longer exist. Even worse, the publisher you support might have contributed to said developer's demise.

Just think about that, please.

Thank you. You're probably right in what you're saying and after reading some of it, it makes sense. I'll check out amibay.

I'm quite new to the Amiga scene, although I've been using Amigas before, I've never owned one personally until now.
