My b&w g3 costs 20€ and runs AROS ... so it is cheaper.
with the g4 ZIF upgrade it isn't always a snug..

Good point!
I forgot about PPC AROS.

Then again, you paid for a G3?

Yes. I tend to buy stuff which impressed me at times where I couldn't afford them.
The later generations didn't impress me as the b&w did.
Same is true for some cars...

MorphOS may eventually move to another ISA (where it will continue to kick ass), but I like the hardware we are using now. It is the cheapest way to get a fast, well designed, PPC system.

If MorphOS moves to x86 and retains seamless 68k emulation would that make it "Amithlon done right"? ;)

Well... to be honest a x86 Version of MOS would be just another AROS distribution.
Emumiga could have brought that "seamless" integration to AROS.

At the end it may be a Fork of AROS 64bit. MOS has some drawbacks.. as far as i know it can only adress 2GB RAM... AROS can do more. AROS has a better 3D system. If you would port Ambient to AROS you would have more or less the best solution.
Just porting that existing stuff over(reinventing the wheel) is waste of time.

JanusUAE with "original AMIGAOS" and coherency is nice and emulates also custom chips.
100% compatible.

EDIT:
Amithlon done right is AROS68k running on top of Linux using native x86 apps and or libraries.

Yeah, I can dig that.
I still like the blueberry colored hardware I've still got an Epson printer that color that I use under MorphOS.
And I'd like to own an 81 Bertone X1/9.

Quote from: bloodline;734253but I would hold off until the ABI V1 transition is complete (very soon).[/QUOTE


Be careful, I am less optimistic then most other AROS devs we can release ABIv1 very soon. I do see a considerable amount of work ahead. Need to find time to write email regarding that to the dev-list. But I am prioritizing the C library work for the moment.

greets,

How can I be entitled to try Aeros?
Apparently there's the need for user and password to get the iso...

I will, thank you.
And, I happen to also have an old iMac g3 600mhz at home. Is there a ppc version of Aros that I could try on it? On Iso format (couldnt find it on the above link)
