VmwAROS started in november 2007, as a pre-installed AROS environment for VMware, but starting with the new version 0.7, published today, it has turned into a complete distribution called VmwAROS LIVE!. From now on, it will be available in two flavours: pre-installed in a virtual machine, and as a live-CD. New users will be able to boot their computers straight into a enhanced AROS environment, with DHCP network support and preliminary web browser. A complete list of new features is available at this site. VmwAROS VM beta 0.7 can be downloaded from here. VmwAROS LIVE! 0.7 can be downloaded from here.
New AROS Distribution Announced

I really like these alternate OS virtual machine distributions. I have installed VMWare Server (free as in beer), and I find it very handy.
The VmwAROS site says that they have FTP working. Since there are already cross-platform compilers, this removes the last major hurdle for me to trying my hand at AROS development again.
Good work, VmwAROS team!
Not bad; a little sluggish and unstable but a nice snap shot.
