It looks like the X-Amiga project is almost ready.

X-Amiga page

I have an unused x86 box waiting for this.

I dont think the site works right in some of the Amiga browsers.

 Its basically a minimal Linux kernal setup just to run E-UAE
on a x86 box or PPC machine.

ah sounds interesting.
I'm browsing on my phone at the moment, so that's probably why I couldn't work it.

With EUAE it does.  Yes, there is an integration bounty open to make it seemless.

But AROS will not let us enjoy classic apps as seemlessly as XAmiga, will it? In other words, if I attempt to launch DPaint IV, will a UAE window come up with workbench icons all over, or will DPaint IV come up in a window? Apples and Oranges  here I think. My understanding is that AROS is not designed to be backward compatible with the Classic apps.

And how easy is it to install AROS directly to the hard drive? Is there a simple installer?

IMO this setup would suit fine UAE running on top of AROS hosted. Why you may ask, because one could (at least in theory ) run 68k AROS inside of it and, with time, get a completely transparent and Amiga IP free system.

Natively if one has support for all drivers, hosted so it can benefit from Linux ones.

Yes I think it was Pocket IE causing the problems. The funny thing is you can't actually get to this message without a browser that displays the site!

Not wanting to start an argument about browsers and things(working as a web developer myself I personally get annoyed with having to support old versions of IE) but I think I you should always try and make it so your site degrades nicely in browsers that arn't upto date or standards compliant.

I wasn't showing off with the phone browser thing! Honest. I tend to browser alot of websites on my phone, during the day at work!
