Check out the port AROS to EFIKA Bounty on Team AROS - It's now the biggest ever!  :cheers:

Surely with this bounty also coming with a free EFIKA board it's not going to get too dusty?  :-o

Actually, there are several donors to this bounty already which includes two corporations (Nusim and Genesi).   Hopefully before XMas, Olivier will have enough time to add the individual bounty donor's pages to the site.

Of course, those who wanted to see AROS ported to PPC, now is your time to give your support by donating.

Can you even by the EFIKA yet?  I went to the website and it says they ship in 2 to 3 weeks, but is that in Amiga time?

Sometimes I think the world has gone crazy.  The biggest AROS bounty ever is to port it to some board that is outdated and almost no one will buy.  AROS already runs on hardware that is easily 10x more powerful for a fraction of the cost.

You are missing footprint, price and potential. This is a uATX board, so you could build a tiny MacMini size system. It's relatively cheap for it's size and being PPC based. Potential? Think MorphOS and OS4 compatability.

Both of which are looking rather dim at the moment, especially the latter.  :roll:

Genesi and Nusim where both major donors which came after a small number of us (yes, that includes me) individuals donated prior to the corp donations.
