That way you can very easily have a look.


No need to do that anymore. VmwAROS Live! already includes a whole virtual machine (QEMU) which can run VmwAROS Live! inside Windows, as like as any other application. The only issue is speed: it's heavily slower than running straight on real hardware.

Ok, that was new to me. I'll check that out.

@deadwood

Arrgghh you have a copy, when can us others test ?
How's the speed ? *EDIT* AH ! you got the link from Stanislaw.

So what kind of X86 and how much ram is required to run the browser and AROS?

If you usually use Firefox, it's in the right place. If you prefer Internet Explorer, it's in the wrong place.

I don't know the recommended minimum, but I had an PIII 733 Mhz, 256 MB lying around. I put an old NVidia card in it and AROS boots easily on that one, under 40 sec, and warm reboot about 10 sec. The OS runs ok, no slowdowns with opening closing applications or windows etc.

I not that privileged that I could have tried out that browser
yet but I don't expect it to be sluggish at all on that hardware.

It is not about being used to FF or IE, but about UI coherence. And in Amigaish OSes the close gadget is always left (for a reason).

Have you ever considered putting the install for AROS live on CDs?  I have a laptop that meets those specs but it's too stupid to boot off a USB DVD drive.  I'd love to install all that stuff but can't without a DVD drive!

If you mean VMW Aros Live, all the previous versions came out on CD, it is only this l;atest release which has grown beyong CD capicity.

AROS itself still come on CD in the form of Nightly Builds, but lack most of what makes VMW AROS so good!!

Sorry, but the way VmwAROS (and AROS itself) installs forces me to place everything on a single media. I'm studying a solution for the problem, but nothing that can be anticipated.

The reason is that placing the close gadget on the right corner would bring people clicking accidetally on it, instead of performing other operations as they wish. On tabs you can't perform those operations. Amiga UI didn't also include "closeable" tabs: Stanislaw had to program this feature by himself and add it to Zune. I don't think we can talk about "UI coherente" at all, in this case...

On AmigaOS UI the most coherent place would be the left side because you already close other GUI elements (e.g. Windows) with a gadget on the left.

Putting close gadgets at the right of the tabs will confuse amigans since amigans have close gadgets at left. Putting the close gadget at the right on MS Windows is the best place since the user closes the windows with a gadget located at the right.

Anyway if the close gadget of the tabs was configurable problem solved for those people who is used to alien OSes with close gadgets on the right.

PS: Stanislaw has done a great work :-)

PS2: But I hope he makes the position of the tabs close gadget configurable and that he locates it at the left so it follows AmigaOS UI style.
